The multi-media installation The Enclave by Richard Mosse will be showing at the Foam Gallery in Amsterdam from 21 March to 1 June 2014. Together with camera-man Trevor Treteen, the Irish photographer (born 1980) repeatedly travelled to the Eastern Congo over the course of two years, where they followed in the trails of rebel groups who terrorise the area with raids, assaults and sexual violence.
The photographs were shot with a discontinued infrared film (Kodak Aerochrome 16 mm) originally produced for U.S. military purposes in the 1940s. Intended for camouflage detection, it renders the green landscape in vivid hues of crimson. The Enclave was also screened at the 55th Venice Biennale.
