Our visual familiarity is limited to the colors of visible light. Beyond what our eyes can see is the iridescent world of the infrared (IR) spectrum. Twenty-four years ago, I began exploring the challenge of making the invisible visible: photographing remote places using the unusual, haunting light of infrared. My images explore my favorite subjects of tribal culture and less frequented lands but served up in unseen light. - Nevada Wier
