Spectral Spectrum - Matthew MaCoy Photographer

Spectral Spectrum

Spectral Spectrum is a photographic study into the invisible world of infrared light. By using large format film sensitive to infrared light in conjunction with a filter that blocks all non-infrared light I was able to visualize a world beyond our visible spectrum. Light captured by the camera is undetectable by the human eye yet it does not escape our senses. We can feel the effects through an invisible warmth. 


Plants uniquely interact with the long light wavelengths, exploding into a ghostly pale white fantastically changing a scene. Juxtaposing this eruption of vibrance alongside the stark, lifeless, geometric monotony symbolic of industry I discovered how oft beauty just lies in wait.
