A pink war-zone

Richard Mosse“If you’re able to make it beautiful they’ll sit up and listen … People are so offended by the colour pink … Robert Capa was a black and white photographer but we don’t see in black and white, but “no no” that’s closer to truth with a capital T …”

Richard Mosse talks about shooting his new film “The Enclave” in Eastern Congo. The film was shot on 16mm infrared film and will be displayed as an absorbing five-screen video installation. It features music composed by Ben Frost, and cinematography by Trevor Tweeten. It’s currently screening at this year’s Venice Biennale.

Stunning.
