Hunches & Bunches

Richard Mosse employs a recently discontinued military film technology originally designed in World War II to reveal camouflaged installations hidden in the landscape.

This film registers an invisible spectrum of infrared light, rendering the green landscape in vivid hues of lavender, crimson, and hot pink.

On the threshold of the medium’s extinction, Mosse employed this film to document an ongoing conflict situation in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
