    Photographer Richard Mosse has spent the last two years shooting a new series of work titled "Infra" in the eastern Congo. The artist is known for his restrained and highly aestheticized views of sites associated with violence and fear, such as his 2008 depictions of the war in Iraq, and his large-scale photographs of airplane crash sites and emergency drills. For his work in the Congo, Mosse used Kodak Aerochrome, an infrared film designed in connection with the United States military to detect camouflage in the 1940s. The film reveals a spectrum of light beyond what the human eye can perceive, turning the lush landscape of the Congo into a bubblegum pink.

    As the Spring 2012 Falk Visiting Artist at the Weatherspoon and the Art Department at UNCG, Mosse will present a lecture and gallery talk on his work and participate in MFA graduate student critiques.

    The exhibition is organized by Xandra Eden, curator of exhibitions.
