Casting Washington in a New Light / by Mark Andre

Washington DC is an overly photographed city. The federal architecture provides an omnipresent backdrop to an amazingly green metropolitan area. Through capturing light invisible to the human eye, common materials behave in an entirely different manner. Glass takes on an opaque darkness, plants become a ghostly white, and pedestrians take on a varied, other-worldly appearance. Even more dramatic are the key features of the city — its triangle parks, tree-lined avenues, and the national mall. The images were taken using a standard DSLR with hardware modified to filter out all visible light, leaving only the ‘infrared.'
