Celebrating (post)modernist movements and futuristic utopian architecture
  • Infra is a series of photographs taken on a series of trips to the Congo, visiting tribal reconciliation gatherings, deserted battlefields, UN-administered aid camps, active war zones, and remote mountain villages in the extraordinary rolling landscape.

    From the gallery description:

    For centuries, the Congo has compelled and defied the Western imagination. 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.

    I love the green being converted in to chewing gum pink making it look very alienisch. But what does it say about the Congo conflict? Anyway, I think it’s a very beautiful and strong series of pictures.
