These Infrared Photos of Washington, D.C. Show the Capital in a New Light

Washington DC is one of the most photographed places in the United States, with over 20 million tourists passing through in 2014.

With so many cameras being pointed everywhere in the capital, photographer Mark Andre wanted to offer a different take. So, he converted a standard DSLR into an infrared camera and has spent the past year shooting an otherworldly series of photos of DC.

“Through capturing light invisible to the human eye, common materials behave in an entirely different manner,” Andre says. “Glass takes on an opaque darkness, plants become a ghostly white, and pedestrians take on a varied, other-worldly appearance.”

“Even more dramatic are the key features of the city — its triangle parks, tree-lined avenues, and the national mall.”
