Photography and words by Richard Mosse from his series "Infra", taken in North Kivu, Eastern Congo, 2011.

"Mosse was drawn to eastern Congo because of the inherent problems of representing its cancerous cycle of war. Struck by the absence of a concrete trace of the conflict on the landscape, Mosse documented rebel enclaves and sites of human rights violations in a way which attempts to overturn traditional realism, and see beneath the surface.

Mosse uses an extinct type of infrared film once employed by the military to detect camouflaged installations from the air.”
