The Magic of Infrared

Infrared photography has long been an interest of mine. I shot a little infrared film in college and have dabbled in it ever since.

Schnitzer and His Family Foundation,” showcases 250 Warhol prints…

Inspired Natives: New Fashion Exhibit Turning Heads and Breaking Stereotypes
