"Inspired by the scientific uses of infrared film throughout history, The Unseen, An Atlas of Infrared pushes the purposes and properties of the rarest photographic film on the planet to their scientific and conceptual limits. British documentary photographer, Edward Thompson, set out to explore the limits of perception, whether they were things outside of our visual spectrum or events that went unnoticed or unreported. From researching the original Kodak advertisements, expert interviews, and scientific journals, Thompson has brought together an extensive archive and has used some of the last 52 rolls of Kodak Aerochrome Infrared film in stock to reveal the invisible.
The project consists of twelve chapters: In The Red Forest 2012, infrared film is used to document the condition of the world's most radioactive forest and, in turn, reimagines Ukraine in deep Soviet burgundy, something that has become eerily prophetic since 2012. In The Vein 2014, he brings back ancient medical photography techniques to reveal the superficial veins under the skin. In In After the Flood, after the Red River Valley 2012, one of the original purposes of the film, documenting post-flood crops through aerial photography, is ignored in favor of making portraits of families that have been affected on the ground. In The City 2014, the infrared film is used to document one of the most polluted cities in the world, London. In The War 2015, the film is used to photograph military paintings, simultaneously manipulating the film's historical military application of uncovering camouflage and also revealing hidden charcoal drawings. In The Village 2012, the film was used to try to document supernatural beings in the most haunted village in the UK the U.K. There were no ghosts to document. Instead, the photographs depict a sci-fi interruption in the pleasant green lands of England's garden, similar to H.G. Wells. Bees and beekeepers are documented in The Apiary 2015, Thick Specimens and Open Heart Surgery Photography in The Gross Specimen 2015. Astrophotography in The Beginning and the End 2015. Surreal photographs in deep, vibrant shades of blue quickly depict the caves glacial ice at Hellir 2016.ales en Hellir (2016).
Thompson has created a final song for color infrared photography, of which this book has also become an artifact, a part of its history. "
