Award winning photographer Nir Arieli takes amazing pictures of men. Nir is originally from Israel, but now works from New York. This set of photos is infrared, up close portraits. While color infrared pictures can often be jarring, black and white infrared looks very close to regular black and white photos – there are subtle differences that make details in the photos pop out. There is an excellent description of infrared photography HERE.Check out more of Nir Ariel’s excellent work on his Tumblr and on his Website.
