Click to preview Spectral Visions photo book

Photography is a time machine - it makes recordings of light at a moment frozen in time and space. Looking at a photograph transports you back to a place where you see a resemblance of what the photographer saw when the picture was made.

The photographs in Spectral Visions are recorded in infrared light, a part of the light spectrum not visible to humans. Just like visible-light photographs, these images are recordings of a frozen moment. But unlike normal photography, the representations here were unseen when the images were made; they are only visible as photographs.


About the Author

Harlan Crowder
hpcrowder Sunnyvale, California, USA

I started making photographs when I was growing up in Dallas. My earliest recognition was a Boy Scout Merit Badge in photography. My later training and education in computer science and applied mathematics spurred an interest in digital photography and imaging. My photographs have appeared in a number of venues in Northern California, including the Palo Alto Art Center, Foothill College, Berkeley Art Center, Costal Art League, Sanchez Art Center, the Sierra Club, Filoli Center, and PhotoCentral.
