In a series of photographs that would not look place out of a scene from Avatar, US photographer Craig P Burrows has managed to make rather ordinary flowers seem extraordinary.
The plants were captured using a type of photography called UVIVF or “ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescence.” It is a relatively unknown process which brings out the glowing fluorescence in plant matter through the use of high-intensity UV lights.
The 28 year old photographer from Southern California has been practising photography since 2010, teaching himself through a combination of practice, online resources, and drawing from his academic background in physics.
He describes his genre as “alternative-light photography,” and says that he has a special interest in photographing infrared, ultraviolet, and ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescence.
