Presented by Council on Culture & Arts (COCA)

Enjoy our local landscapes like you've never seen them before. The light your eyes can see falls within what's known as the "visible spectrum." Infrared lies beyond this band and is not visible to human eyes. Michael Riffle creates his photographs using special equipment, beyond your standard camera, and he will be your guide into this "unseen" world.
