Infrared war aftermath photos by Richard Mosse

These photos of war-torn West Africa are iconic and disturbing. Though the photos by Richard Mosse paint the conflict in the Eastern Congo with bizarrely bright colors, the 20 year-old photographer had every intention of making the scenes surreal and eye-catching. Using infrared photography techniques typically reserved for military pilots trying to detect camouflage from above, Mosse captured the pain of destroyed villages, terrifying conflict, and the loss of 5.4 million people.
