Richard Mosse

I discovered this photographer a couple of months ago and I fell in love with his work, but what is most exciting is that I had the chance to see his work at Venice Biennale, Irish Pavillion. Richard Mosse travelled around the Democratic Republic of Congo, land of wars, and he took these incredible pictures by using a Kodak Aerochrome film, which turns infrared rays in shades of pink. A powerful effect to rethink a land of violence and blood. 
"Mosse makes vivid how cruelty can be sublime and violence can ravage or remake a landscape in ways we may politically detest but also find visually arresting, even beautiful.”
