Congo Through Infrared Film by Richard Mosse

Richard Mosse was born in 1980 in Ireland and is based in New York. He earned an MFA in Photography from Yale School of Art in 2008 and a Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, London in 2005. Throughout 2012, Mosse traveled the Democratic Republic of Congo and taking photographs of rebel groups with Kodak Aerochrome film. Developed for the military in the 1940s, the infrared film captures greens in shades of pink and red and became popular in the psychedelic culture of the 1960s. Using the film in his 8x10 and 6x7 cameras proved challenging. The film, he notes, is highly heat-sensitive, meant to last just seven days at room temperature—and freezers are rare in the region. Even harder? “You’re always under threat of ambush, especially when walking across front lines, in unstable zones of conflict deep in the jungle,” he told Popular Photography.
