Richard Mosse – The Impossible Image

After the success of the series ‘Infra’ (see here), the Irish photographer and filmmaker Richard Mosse has recently presented at the Venice Biennale his first mini-movie shot entirely with old infrared films “infrared”. Born with the aim to rethink the so-called “war photography”, ‘The Enclave’ documents the state of things among the worst regions of the Congo through this particular effect achieved through the use of Arriflex 16mm cameras with Kodak Aerochrome. Here is a short behind-the-scenes in which Mosse explains the origins and objectives of his work, the film will be in programming at the Venice Biennale until next November 24, 2013.
