“Infra” Photo Series by Richard Mosse
Brilliant aerochrome series by Irish photographer Richard Mosse.
“For centuries, the Congo has compelled and defied the Western imagination. Richard Mosse brings to this subject the use of a discontinued military surveillance technology, a type of color infrared film called Kodak Aerochrome. Originally developed for camouflage detection, this aerial reconnaissance film registers an invisible spectrum of infrared light, rendering the green landscape in vivid hues of lavender, crimson, and hot pink.”Art Photography Posted on November 30, 2011
