The Budapest Unseen photo series presents the city and the urban greenery scattered around the buildings in a new, unusual, yet extremely interesting way.
Cameras sensitive to infrared light can detect the infrared rays plants rich in chlorophyll reflect. In the photos taken with such cameras vegetation can be easily discerned from all other non-living matter. By swapping colours subsequently, unique shots of the sights of Budapest can be created, showing the city in ways never seen before.
Although this technology was already developed in the middle of the 20th century by Kodak with its Aerochrome III Infrared Film 1443, today the same results can be achieved with modernised tools and digital editing.
Among the pictures available at Curioso’s online store we can find similar series not only of Budapest, but also of Lake Balaton.
