Every now and then I stumble upon something I haven’t seen before that visually captivities me. When I first saw the photos of Richard Mosse, I was drawn in and had to find more of his work. The irish artist and photographer has captured beautiful photojournalistic photos of people and landscapes in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. He achieves the look of these photos by using a discontinued film stock Aerochrome. The Kodak film was invented during the Cold War in conjunction with the US military in order to see enemy activity from the air and it’s this process which gives these photos a dreamy ‘Dr.Seuss’ feel.
These photos are from the critically acclaimed photographic series “Infra,” shot in the DRC. He recently embarked on a new project which is entitled ”The Enclave,” it’s a multimedia installation that opened last weekend at the Irish Pavilion of the Venice Biennale in Italy. It will run at the Fondaco Marcello in Venice until November 24.
