Photography – Richard Mosse

Photography – Richard Mosse

We at So It Goes are regularly asked which feature from the magazine is "our favourite". Far from wishing to prejudice ourselves by singling out individual features, I don't mind saying that our fourteen-page feature on Irish artist Richard Mosse remains one of this writer's most cherished. Using obsolete military surveillance technology by way of a pink-hued, infrared colour film called Kodak Aerochrome, Mosse draws attention to the ongoing violence and atrocity in the Democratic Republic of Congo by juxtaposing the aesthetically sublime with scenes of horror and human suffering.

So, in a very special feature, here are some of Richard Mosse's breathtaking images that didn't make it into So It Goes, Issue.2. Enjoy...
