One of the standard effects of infrared photography is that foliage can come out glowing as though it had its own light source due to the visual spectrum infrared sees. I have found that this depends, actually, on the method of color mapping utilized. Infrared imagery sub-categorizes itself as ‘near-infrared’, most common in photography, and ‘far-infrared’ used in medical imagery. The extent to which foliage glows depends on how ‘near’ one goes. (Of course, some kinds of image capture, particularly film, is non-negotiable as the level of infrared is locked in, so adjusting the spectrum of light the image reflects only holds for computer generated work).
The thing with tornados, however, is that there is no foliage left.
Trees are even more vulnerable to the destructive effects of high winds than houses, and by and large trees cannot be repaired or rebuilt. It’s the downed trees that have to be removed first. These mauled trunks are standing in Jefferson City’s Hickory/Adams Neighborhood Park. Teams of volunteers have already removed the fallen limbs.
NOTE: Fifteen of these works depicting Jefferson City, Missouri’s May 22 tornado damage have been compiled into an artbook, which may be viewed and purchased at Capital Arts in Jefferson City, or purchased on this website in either 10-inch paperback or signed 12-inch hardcover).
All my life I have had to learn to do things differently. To see the world differently.
