Photographers in Focus: Richard MosseTo mark this year’s World Photo Day, on 19 August, Nowness premiered its latest episode of landmark series Photographers in Focus. This time, focusing on the work of Richard Mosse. The Irish filmmaker and photographer first gained significant attention for his startling and surreal images of the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. These shots, some of which you can view below, used infrared film to transform trees, bushes, and flowers into a landscape of extraterrestrial unfamiliarity, bringing together—in compositions that are both beautiful and terrifying—the extremities of conflict. Throughout his career, the photographer has investigated not only war, but the fact of the human displacement caused by war. This has taken him from the Congo to the Balkans, and from the US-Mexican border to the shores of his native Europe.
