Infrared Dreamscapes: Sean Lynch's Photographs from Nepal


You’ll really know a photo shot using infrared film when you see one. The normal colors of ordinary life are given a new splash of crazy eye-candy colors. New York-based photographer Sean Lynch traveled to Nepal last September and took home these amazing infrared photos from the trip.

Color shifts are just phenomenal-looking in infrared (IR) films. An otherwise plain-looking countryside can be given a whole new dash of paint with just a click of a shutter. Well, Nepal has many sights for the discerning traveler even without the help of IR film but these photos just beg to differ.

Shot on the fields of the Annapurna Himalayan Range, photographer Sean Lynch picked the Kodak EIR film for his landscape photographs. Looking at the pictures is like seeing a dreamscape where only brightly-colored trees and plants grow.

It’s like every shade of pink imaginable is patiently squeezed into each print to intricately produce a quite amazing series of photographs. Apart from the wonderful color shift of the foliage and land, the distinct blue green or cyan tones of the distant skies and some pools of water provide contrast to the images.

Dropped your jaw and muttered only “wow” when you saw these IR shots? Head on over to Sean Lynch’s site to see his other equally stunning photographs taken using different films.

    Boy, I wish they still made that stuff! Then it was E4 process, which is harder to come by. Hey, Lomography, think you could have some real IR film made? Not that psudo false color stuff.
