Photographer Richard Mosse’s artistic photographs of war and humanitarian disasters addresses the viewers’ desire for rhyme and reason in the face of such atrocities. In his Quick series, Mosse documents the conflicts in Congo using infra-red film, which make his images seem magical and serenely beautiful, but reality continuously lurks in the faces of refugees and the rifles brandished by purple-uniformed soldiers.
