Photography traditionalists like me are sad to see the slow decline of film as a medium, and not just because of its old-world charm. Cross-processing and other processing techniques can produce some amazing colors, and so, it appears, can taking infra-red film to the Arctic. NYC photographer Daniel Zvereff did exactly that, and the result was these remarkable images. As per Feature Shoot, where I first saw these pictures, “the dazzling fuchsia, crimson, and lavender tones are produced when the film reacts to the chlorophyll in plants.” Sadly, Kodak no longer makes the Aerochrome film that Zvereff used, so these are some of the last pictures that’ll be taken with it — Zvereff has 15 rolls left, and plans to return to the Arctic next summer.
