Happenings: Richard Mosse, The Enclave

Richard Mosse’s series ‘The Enclave’ documents the hauntingly beautiful landscape in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, where millions of people have died due to war related causes since 1998. Shot on a discontinued military surveillance film, which produces an invisible spectrum of infrared light, the resulting imagery shows the jungle war-zone in psychedelic pink and turquoise shades.

Beautifully immersive and powerful, this exhibition will have you equally amazed and unsettled. Whilst the imagery depicts the tragic way of life for those so affected by war, you can’t help but feel in awe of the dreamily surreal colours and landscapes. It comes as no surprise that this work recently won the acclaimed Deutsche Borse Photography Prize 2014.

Luckily you can go and see this work for yourself at the Photographers Gallery until June 22nd! Highly recommended by all of us at Glasshouse it is truly an exhibition not to be missed.
