ALL IMAGES BY PAOLO PETTIGANI
New York is the city that never sleeps and never ceases to be photographed. Perhaps one of the most captured cities by both photographers and tourists, many scenes of the Big Apple can become mundane and boring. Photographer and graphic designer Paolo Pettigiani snapped several shots of the dazzling city through an infrared lens causing all the trees to turn red. The 24-year-old Italian-born artist recently moved to New York where he began documenting scenes of the city with his unique lens and the application of Photoshop. Pettigiani created surreal, chromatic images of the usual green trees and grass turned a vibrant cherry red contrasted with the aqua blue skies set against the geometric skyscrapers. The famous landmark of Central Park has literally been painted a new colour and red becomes the new green.
