The Mystic Light of Japan

  • Photographer
    Miguel Franco Botticelli

Japan is a unique, multifaceted country with a millennial culture and tradition. The beautiful architecture of the ancient temples are extraordinary. The contrast between modernity and tradition is almost unique. In this project, I focused on mystical Japan. I exposed it in the invisible light of the infrared spectral region, with a professional digital camera, modified as an infrared camera.
