Dunaliella salina is the newest series done by Paolo Pettigiani a photographer from Italy. He is well known for his infrared images. One specialty in this new series is that the pink color is not injected but is real and can be seen in Camargue, France’s salt fields. The salt field he had photographed is in France and the color is due to microalgae named Dunaliella salina. And the series also has the same name. He had done an amazing series with the pink water, blue sky, and green seaweed.
Paolo had shared with My Modern Met that he had been interested in the colors and shapes of saline and had said that it’s quite hard to find one so colorful in central Europe. He had said that 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. According to Paolo beauty is something that can be found in everyday actions and places.
