    Richard Mosse is an Irish conceptual documentary photographer. He has worked in Iran, Pakistan, Haiti and the former Yugoslavia. He is best known for his infrared images from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. For his infrared photographs he used a large format camera and the now-discontinued Kodak Aerochrome film. Aerochrome is a false-color infrared film originally intended for aerial vegetation surveys and for military reconnaissance, such as to identify camouflaged targets. It registers a spectrum of infrared light invisible to the human eye, rendering the green landscape and soldiers' uniforms in vivid hues of lavender, crimson and hot pink.
