Luciano Demasi

Luciano Demasi's photo activity is focused on "capturing the uniqueness of each moment nature provides with its immense and stunning endless beauty." He took photos in San Diego East County (including Anza-Borrego Desert) and US national parks.

His real artistic love is for infrared photography: "the invisible world is first imagined, then captured, and finally brought to life, to unleash creativity, passion, and emotions. The invisible world is part of our reality and infrared photography is what unveils true beauty by enhancing our perception."

He is the Grand Prize winner of the 1st Place Photo Essay (title: "Imagining and then Making Paradise Visible: Wonders from Utah and the Role of Chaos) of the 2019 Kolari Visions Life in Another Light Photo Contest. Luciano Demasi is Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and professor of Aerospace Engineering at the San Diego State University and is author of more than 100 publications in the areas of aerodynamics, structures, and aeroelasticity.
