Men Of Good Fortune :: Richard Mosse (2011)
Tonight’s visiting artist was Richard Mosse, an Irish photographer. I adored him. This semester is rocking the choice of artists to present.
Anyway, he had a lot of information to present, but his life has been rather interesting. He’s been all over the world to document air disasters (plane crashes), items left behind by illegal immigrants, the war in Iraq, and the raging wars in Congo.
This shot is from Congo. He used now-discontinued film that was created to detect camoflauge (Kodak Aerochrome? Not totally sure) The film basically inverts colors through selection of natural vs. artificial greens.
