It’s the work that everyone’s talking about, Richard Mosse’s infrared film shot in the heart of Congo that was shown this year at the Venice Biennale in the Irish pavilion. In this short documentary produce by frieze, Richard explains the ideas behind the film and the history behind the method itself. It turns out that infrared film, which picks up chlorophyl from only the healthiest living plants, was produced in the 1940s by the military to help them see enemies hiding out in the bushes.

Artist and photographer Richard Mosse reveals the stories behind the making of his latest film, 'The Enclave' (2013), in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which will be shown in the Irish Pavilion at this year’s 55th Venice Biennale.

0
Your rating: None

The locations are the battlefields of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The images are made with the Cold War-era satellite film Aerochrome, a discontinued Kodak infared color film originally designed for reconnaissance and camouflage detection. The film sees normal foliage as magenta or red, showing camouflage as purple or blue. In the vivid pages of Infra, the question of objectivity is moot, as we are invited to appreciate a metaphor stretched to its limit. Our personal experience “colors” all that we see, and making us imperfect observers and less-than-neutral witnesses.

Photographer Richard Mosse writes: “My work is not a performance of the ethical. I’m concerned less with conscience than with consciousness. And so I became enthralled by Aerochrome’s inflation of the documentary, mediating a tragic landscape through an invisible spectrum, disorienting me into a place of reflexivity and skepticism, into a place in consonance with my impenetrable, ghost-like subject.” With this new book from Aperture, Mr. Mosse ventures into territory typically covered by photojournalists or “war photographers.” In doing so, he joins ranks with a small group of fine-art photographers who have made similar forays—this time adding a new layer of dissonance to painful photographs of the mutilated, prisoners, and child soldiers.

Nowhere To Run, 2010. The mountains of South Kivu are home to a large population of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) rebels, a Hutu paramilitary group that has lived in exile in Congo since the 1994 Rwandan genocide. These hills are also rich in rare minerals like gold, cassiterite, and coltan, which are extracted by artisanal miners who must pay taxes to the rebels.

With its grand new setting in the Grand Palais, nearly 120 exhibiting galleries, and tens of thousands of expected visitors, Paris Photo has secured its place as the n’est plus ultra of photography fairs.

That hasn’t kept its new director, Julien Frydman, from having even greater ambitions for the 15th anniversary of the annual event, which begins today and runs through Nov. 13. “It’s about getting out of the ghetto,” says Frydman, the former chief of Magnum Photos in the French capital, who notes that until recently, documentary photography has languished as a sideshow in the history of art. “We want to make sure this photo fair is among the best art fairs of the world.”

Paris Photo 2011 certainly has a lot going for it already. This year, the theme of Sub-Saharan Africa will be marked by a display of portraits from the private trove of German collector Artur Walther and a special exhibition of up-and-coming young African talent. Visitors will be treated to a vast array of images from the continent, from Malick Sidebé’s celebration of Malian pop culture in the 1969′s to Richard Mosse’s pink-hued portraits of modern Congo.

In addition to its usual swarm of galleries, this year’s fair will feature a suite of new attractions intended to up its global profile. Frydman hopes the new Paris Photo Platform, a discussion forum, will debunk the notion of documentary photography as an insular art form. Led by art historian Chantal Pontbriant, the Platform will feature “thinkers, artists, art critics—but not the usual suspects,” he promises. To bring alive this dialogue between photography and other genres, storied curator André Magnin will bring together paintings and photographs by artists such as Yinka Shonibare and Seydou Keïta.

Another new feature, “Recent acquisitions,” uncovers how museums collect their artworks, from the Tate Modern’s focus on the oeuvre of Daido Moriyama to the Musée de l’Elysée’s acquisition of the Charlie Chaplin estate.

In time, Frydman hopes that his innovations will “skyrocket the fair into the top 10” art fairs in the world. It’s important to him, however, that it doesn’t lose its heart along the way. “What I wanted to keep is the conviviality,” he says, noting the fair’s ambiance of friendship and shared passion. “That’s something to keep as a treasure.”

Paris Photo runs through Nov. 13 in the French capital. Read more about it here.

I remember reading about the below project from 2007, a year or probably more ago, and when Duckrabbit recommended it last week I thought I’d share it here…Some Twitter comments for the website since last night’s initial posting… One photographer mentioned “Exactly how a website should not ever look like.” and another “It feels like a bad acid trip.”….so do have a look…. It really is quite an “experimental interface for storytelling” as mentioned on the project’s website, and in my opinion you don’t necessarily even want to ‘Begin the Whale Hunt‘ (unless of course you want the acid trip!)  instead of just look at some of the stills on the ‘Highlights‘ page…although the number could be edited well down…

NYT Lens blog featured Espen Rasmussen’s book In Transit. One of the pictures from the book is the below frame of a Rohingya fisherman in Bangladesh…I remember reading an interview with Rasmussen in BJP last year, when he still had the Rohingya pictures converted in black and white and mentioned he might convert them back to colour…

From BJP… “He shot thousands of digital images, editing them down to a story of just 32 shots, then converting them to black-and-white and adding text and captions.”[ …} Rasmussen often writes his own stories and, although he also enjoys working with journalists, says it’s his favourite approach. After all, he points out, the most important thing is the story, and he’s in a good position to tell it both in images and words. “I let people talk and show their daily struggle through interviews and pictures,” he says. “I don’t search for the obvious drama, I try to describe daily life.” In fact, he’s considering turning the images back into colour, concerned that the sheer beauty of the monochrome versions detracts from the Rohingya’s plight.”.

Looks like he has done…See comparison here.

Interviews

Must read Bryan Denton interview on Lens blog…

“To me, having training and gear is a responsibility we have to our families and friends who worry about us, our colleagues who work beside us and can benefit from our know-how if they’re wounded, and to the readers who are informed by the images we take and will cease to be if we get taken out of the game. There’s never any guarantee that that stuff will save you, but we owe it to those who love us, support our work and each other to take every precaution we can.” – Bryan Denton

Third PJ Links edition from Brighton…. Apologies if my updates have been a bit more infrequent than usual during the last two weeks…I’ve just had too much going on with the move from Wales and settling down again…

I loved Michael Nichols’ Redwoods work that I saw exhibited in Perpignan as seen here in a photo by yours truly, which hopefully doesn’t do great injustice to Nichols’ work…

Anyway, the reason I put the photo here is that the people at Canon Professional Network did an interview with Nichols about the work…
