Richard Mosse
Lava Floe
Medium: Digital c-print
Year made: 2010
Photographer Richard Mosse (b. 1980, Ireland) is known for his highly aestheticised views of sites associated with violence and fear. For his Infra project, Mosse uses obsolete military surveillance technology, a type of infrared colour film called Kodak Aerochrome, to investigate ongoing conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Originally created to detect targets for aerial bombing, Kodak Aerochrome film registered a spectrum of light beyond what the human eye can see, rendering foliage in vivid hues of lavender, crimson and hot pink.
Location: Manhattan
Date acquired: 21 February 2012
