Hungary-based artist Milán Rácmolnár  captures the ancient Italian capital in a different perspective by converting his old Nikon D3200 into an infrared camera. The result is a photographic series of “a somewhat peculiar look”, which describes, not unlike the proverbial rose-tinted glasses, its timeless, lambent aura.


His latest series named 'Rome in infrared' focuses on the visual perception of the infrared wavelength.

He blends a subjective tourist perspective with the surreal attributes of the infrared seeing.
In this way he produces a candid picture of the city of Rome.

Racmolnar Milan is a professional photographer, based in Budapest. His main focus is the impact the digital world has had on the human perception. And how this new age affects our image of the world we live in. He also tirelessly seeks for new perspectives in everyday situations. Milan has participated in group exhibitions in Budapest, London and New York.

    I have seen Rome, but never in infrared. Nice twist on a famous place.
