Zak van Biljon Aerochrome

Now discontinued, Kodak Aerochrome films were first designed for use in aerial photography, with cartography and military applications. Aerochrome is sensitive to the entire visible spectrum of light in the same way as normal film, only difference is that its sensitivity is extended way beyond, into the invisible near infrared.

Zak van Biljon’s work range from digital to analog with skills in contemporary advertising and modern art photography. His main focus is the directorial handling of light – as shown in his recent art work, captured in infrared. Here, the world seen in red and pink colours provides a new and impressive insight to reality as we know it.

Red turf is the homeland of Zak van Biljon. The South African photographer, born 1981, spent his childhood and teenage years in both Johannesburg and Cape Town. In 2003 he graduated as best student at the National College of Photography. With a study of black & white printing – ironically, for someone who grew up under the colourful impressions of the Rainbow Nation.
