Photography duo Arturo + Bamboo release their third publication ‘RED MOON’. The images are a collection of blurry landscapes, silhouettes and vague abstracts all drenched in a mysterious red and black, photographed over the summer of 2020.

RED MOON acts as a personal album of dream-like memories and feels like something between an utopia and a dystopia. The publication was shot on a reverse-rolled color negative film to emphasise the raw beauty of the subjects – staring at the images shows details which are at first hidden for the eye.

Red is the color of fire and blood, it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure.

The Moon is a gravity rounded astronomical body of planetary-mass, rocky silicate composition and without significant atmosphere, hydrosphere or magnetic field. It is orbiting the planet Earth of the inner Solar System, as Earth’s only natural satellite. Its surface gravity is about a sixth of Earth’s with 0.1654 g.
