The images below are of the Congo, from photographer Richard Mosse’s Infra series. Their coloring comes from their use of Kodak Aerochrome, a discontinued military film. Like other infrared systems, living things are rendered in a pinkish red; everything else is a stark gray-black.

The series is a compelling statement about the built environment when you think about it. All the man-made structures are dead, practically invisible. like black holes in a very-much-alive Seuss-like world.

      Agreed! Wouldn’t be impressed if it was Photoshopped. I’m glad he was able to get his hands on that film still. Are you a photographer?
