The photographs from the series THERMAL were not captured by exposing light sensitive film or by capturing light energy onto a digital sensor. Rather, they were captured using a thermal camera. The sensor of the camera detects heat as opposed to light. More specifically, it detects radiation, which has a direct correlation to heat. The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases its temperature, allowing the sensor of the camera to detect these variations causing warm objects to visually stand apart from cooler objects.
Typically thermography is used in areas of surveillance, medical detection and building construction, aiding the human eye to reveal what is invisible within our normal range of vision. I am also using the thermal camera to reveal what cannot be seen, yet my area of interest focuses on the visual intrigue of living beings. Without the use of light to capture images, heat exposes a mysterious and ethereal world.
