Richard Mosse

Wind and Turn Clothing

I just recently stumbled across this photographer, and I love the infrared quality to these images in juxtaposition to the subject matter. Really amazing. Richard Mosse is an Irish born photographer ‘is known for his restraining and highly aestheticised views of sites associated with violence and fear, such as his 2008 depictions of the war in Iraq, and his large-scale photographs of aeroplane crash sites.’ In these images he uses ‘used Kodak Aerochrome – an infra-red film designed in the 1940s to assist the U.S. military in detecting camouflage – to photograph the people and landscape of the Eastern Congo. ‘
