Richard Mosse: Infra
Irish photographer and video artist Richard Mosse’s latest series of images uses a specially treated photographic film called Kodak Aerochrome to create distorted images of rebel settlements in the Congo.
Titled Infra, the series employs a technique previously used by military organisations to detect camouflaged enemies by picking up on infrared light sources. This results in images that have crimson, red and violet tones.
The photographs are on display at Jack Shainman Gallery, New York until December 23 2011.
