The Photography of Richard Mosse

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.

Photo Tools of the Trade: Ryan Skinner

The questions every photographer gets asked are “What camera do you use?” or “What camera is the best to buy?”

There’s no such thing as a perfect camera, but it is fun to explore the different results varied cameras , lenses, filters and film can give. Experienced photographers select the tools best suited for the job that they are most comfortable with. ¬†This will be an on-going feature where I profile photographers on the cameras they like to shoot on.

To launch this series I spoke with Ryan of Fortune and Fear about his camera collection and his favorite things to shoot on.
