NYC’s Infrared Central Park is Transformed Into a Majestic Alienesque Dreamscape by Paolo Pettigiani

Italian photographer and graphic designer Paolo Pettigiani’s recent visit to Central Park’s full bloom in spring led to a surreal, whimsical, and otherworldly experience. The New York treasure its known as the greenest spot in the Big Apple, but Peggitiani’s wand transformed it into a dreamlike passage from Dr. Seuss’ most imaginative tales.

The subtle red hue creates a stunning, sharp and intriguing contrast, which makes the picturesque and one of most romantic sceneries in the world appear as an alienesque beauty from another planet. You can buy Pettigiani’s art prints in his Society6 shop.

Also available as canvas prints, T-shirts, Phone cases, Throw pillows, Tapestries and More!

“Take 1 pint of water, add a half pound of sugar, the juice of 8 lemons, the zest of half a lemon, pour the water from one jug into the other several times. Strain through a thin napkin. Grandmother, the alchemist. You spun gold out of this hard life. Conjured beauty from the things left behind. Found healing where it did not live. Discovered the antidote in your own kitchen. Broke the curse with your own two hands. You passed the instructions down to your own daughter. Then she passed it down to her daughter.”

Congrats to all the black and brown graduates of 2016, we did it!!!! 🍋✊🏾

Cats + Puns = Etti-Cat, an awesome series of New York City subway posters created in the 1960s that used an adorable tuxedo cat spokes-cat to promote respectful behavior. Etti-Cat encouraged subway riders to refrain from defacing the trains, warned them against littering, and encouraged them to offer their seats to the elderly.

The Etti-Cat posters are currently on display as part of an exhibit entitled Transit Etiquette Or: How I Learned To Stop Spitting And Step Aside In 25 Languages at the New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex through October 20.
