Thermal technology is typically used for surveillance and detection of chemical, biological, radiation, nuclear and explosive materials. In contrast, these thermal photographs animate living beings. Heat on the surface of skin is seen as patterns, textures and tonal contrasts, emphasizing our biological commonalities such as breath, sweat, inflammation and the circulation of blood. This project reaches beyond the visible, shedding light on the universal connectivity of life.
These images are captured with a high resolution thermal camera. Each image is printed as an archival pigment print. Each photograph is signed by the artist en verso.
