Lecture: Richard Mosse
Richard Mosse’s photography captures the beauty and tragedy in war and destruction. His most recent series, Infra captures the ongoing war between rebel factions in the Congo. The Infra series is marked by Mosse’s use of Kodak Aerochrome, a discontinued reconnaissance infrared film. The film registers chlorophyll in live vegetation, with the results rendering the lush rainforest into a beautifully surreal landscape of pinks and reds. In 2013 Mosse represented Ireland in the Venice Biennale with the The Enclave an immersive six-channel video installation. Mosse was the winner of the 2014 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize and exhibits work internationally.
