Capturing the beautiful light of a plant’s UV emissions

Inspired by Oleksandr Holovachov’s work with ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescence (UVIVF) photography, young California-based photographer Craig Burrows sets out at night to capture unsuspecting flowers around his local neighbourhood that might emit UV light, and has done so in spectacular fashion.

Craig’s awesome work is often centred around landscape or urban scenes, but the macro world is a favourite, especially when it comes to this UV series, where the natural light given off by plants is overwhelmed by sunlight, and largely goes unseen by the naked eye.

Much like our favourite tshirt under a black light might glow, these flowers glow under UV light and give off an amazing array of colour which is too beautiful to say the least.
