Photo essay by Richard Mosse

 

Using discontinued Kodak Aerochrome infrared film, Irish photographer Richard Mosse captures the conflict in Eastern Congo in vivid colors, exploring unknown invisible conditions to interpret reality. The result is a series of almost fictional photographs of nomadic rebels and landscape that blur the boundaries between art and photojournalism. They document the tragic reality while pushing the viewer to see the conflict like never before.
