Late last year, we featured the first documentary folio from Australian photographer Kasia Sykus. Kasia is back with her second documentary piece, ‘Infrared New Zealand’. Armed with her trusty Pentax K1000 and rolls of discontinued colour infrared film, Kasia spent two weeks traveling New Zealand, capturing a very different perspective of the beautiful and rugged NZ landscape.
Colour infrared film can be a tricky beast but, handled carefully, can yield some dramatic results as seen here in Kasia’s images. Depending on the filter used, the infrared film renders the chlorophyll in foliage in vibrant hues of pink lending a surreal atmosphere to seemingly ordinary scenes.
Kasia is heading back to New Zealand this month to continue this series and we can’t wait to see the results!
