The latest series of Paolo Pettigiani is Dunaliella salina and this photographer from Italy is well known for his infrared images. Unlike his other works, this new series has a natural pink color that’s formed in salt fields and can be seen in Camargue, France. And what causes this pink color in the salt fields is Dunaliella salina, microalgae. His newest series is also named after the same microalgae. You can see some amazing photos with the pink water, blue sky, and green seaweed.
As he had said to My Modern Met he’s someone who had been interested in the colors and shapes of saline. Also, he had said that in Central Europe it’s quite hard to find colorful ones. On the internet, few years before he had seen some images of Salin d’Aigues-Mortes. And also said that Dunaliella salina is a perfect example of how the natural environment can inspire his creativity. He loves to share these with people and bring emotions to them using his infrared work and to show them that nature is something that’s really amazing. And as per him, beauty is everywhere in everyday actions and places.
