Richard Mosse | Quick Series


Irish-born photographer Richard Mosse has documented some of the most astounding sites in the world, and this time he took on Eastern Congo and came back with Quick, a series of photographs shot with Kodak Aerochrome infared film to create an alternative image of the complexsocial and political dynamics of the country.

The film, designed for the United Statesmilitary during the Cold War, reveals a spectrum of light beyond what the human eye can perceive. He aims “to shock the viewer with this surprising bubblegum palette …”.

Absolutely outstanding!

  5. Very interesting photos. The stern military type subjects really look unusual with the bubble gum landscapes.

  6. I know what you mean, Greg. Kind of ads another level to the seriousness.

  7. So pink camo is back in now?

    That infrared film takes some really interesting shots, I’m going through the rest of Mosse’s set now.

  8. “reveals a spectrum of light beyond what the human eye can perceive” He captures just that. When you first look at the fields you are drawn to wonder and relish into its beauty. The fields create the backdrop that pushes the images into the front of your attention. Nice!
