Startling infrared war photography

Irish photographer Richard Mosse uses 16mm Aerochrome film to make us see the invisible—literally & figuratively—in the Congo’s ongoing war. He says,

How much more constructed is a pink photograph than a black-and-white photograph? … [Viewers are] confused, and angry, and disoriented. And this is great! Because you got them to actually think about the act of perception and how this imagery is produced and consumed.

 

In a marginally related vein, on Popular Photography Debbie Grossman writes about creating Fake Infrared Photography Using Adobe Camera Raw. [Via John Dowdell]
