Infra by Richard Mosse

Richard Mosse‘s photography project Infra uses a type of infrared color film called Kodak Aerochrome, an obsolete military surveillance technology, to investigate ongoing conflict in the Republic of Congo.

The Kodak Aerochrome was originally created to detect targets for aerial bombing. It renders foliage of hues of lavender, pink and crimson. The result is Mosse’s surrealistic photographic depiction of the ongoing war and it is enhanced by the use infrared technology and distorted result.

This project highlights the complexity of the region’s violence. Mosse’s images of Eastern Congo’s civil war is as shocking and complex as the conflict it seeks to understand.

Infected Landscapes by Shai Kremer

In 1999, Israeli photographer Shai Kremer started photographing the ominous traces of the military on the landscapes of Israel and on their society. Her pictures reflect the trauma and resulting damages in living in a world of conflict and war, it also warns of the permanent effects in the people’s lives.

Kremer’s images are often attractive, aesthetic, innocent and poetic. These landscapes, infected with sediments and fragments of the ongoing conflict, becomes a platform of discussion. These photographs attract the viewer and then challenges him to reflect on their meaning and implications.

As written by Sverker Svorlin, “Military landscapes are collective memories. They remind us that political violence has a spatiality and that it can be found also amongst landscape that we have learned to love. Giving these military landscapes some visibility may therefore be an act of peace.”

A Witness Through Lenses by James Nachtwey

“I have been a witness, and these pictures are my testimony. The events I have recorded should not be forgotten and must not be repeated.”  These are the words of the photographer James Nachtwey, a witness through lenses. From the time when he was assigned to cover the civil strife in Northern Ireland in 1981 as a freelance photographer, he devoted himself to documenting wars and conflicts all over the world.

His photography project shows the various troubling issues around the world: war zones, prisoners, AIDS, abandoned children, etc. in full gray scale. He wants to show the world that there are enough problems around us, many are suffering the consequences including the innocent children and it is already enough and that it should be stopped.

Nachtwey has been a contract photographer with Time magazine since 1984 and his work has been pulished in National Geographic, Stern, Paris Match and New York Times Magazine to name a few. Because of his Humanistic Photography, he has been a recipient of the Common Wealth Award, Martin Luther King Award, Dr. Jean Mayer Global Citizenship Award, Henry Luce Award, Robert Capa Gold Medal (five times) and a lot more.
