About this photo: “This was shot on one of the rarest films in the world, Kodak Aerochrome color infrared. Color infrared film has a very unique look that cannot be duplicated digitally. There are digital imitations, but I find them aesthetically lacking to the real stuff. So, to me, color infrared photography in its true essence is a dying art. In fact, it’s nearly extinct. From what I understand, there are fewer than 700 rolls in existence. I love this film for its psychedelic nature. It looks completely otherworldly. The clash of bubble gum pink and cobalt blue has such a cheery look. I only wish it were more widely available so more folks could experience it.”
