PHOTOS: Doha in infrared, by Timos Lytras

Timos Lytras is a lab management expert from Athens, Greece who often finds himself in Doha, passing in and out on short work trips.

An enthusiast photographer, he shoots when he can, and says he tries to capture the mood of the country in his work. He captured these infrared images on trips to Qatar last year and earlier this year with a camera modified to capture light invisible to the human eye.

The effect is an almost magical take on the landscape we see daily.

The photographer explains:

“Actually I have taken only 3 infrared shots in Qatar and the reason for this is that usually I stay for one week there, working all day, and I have the opportunity to shoot only at night when IR photography is not working at all. These three shots I took the two times I spent two consecutive weeks in Doha and I had a weekend to spend in between.”

“I’m very interested in Qatar since it is so different than the Mediterranean countries I’m used to.”

Although these are his only IR shots, you can see lots more of his street photography on Flickr.
