“Infra” is a photo series by Irish photographer Richard Mosse that documents the ongoing conflict in Eastern Congo through the vibrant false color of infrared film.
Richard Mosse - An Irish artist who used discontinued military surveillance film to portray the war-scarred landscapes of the Democratic Republic of Congo – giving them an almost magical and alien psychedelic pink hue. Mosse and his team spent three years in eastern Congo using infrared film formerly used to identify camouflaged targets. The result is a series of beautiful but unsettling films, sounds and photographs about a conflict that has left 5.4 million dead.
Richard Mosse | Photography - 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.
