'Quick' by Richard Mosse Transforms Congo Landscapes

Richard Mosse uses infrared technology to take spectacularly deranged pictures of the Congo. The images toy with your head, as they play with the colors you naturally associate with certain things.

For example, green or brown are generally the colors associated with hills and landscapes, but for Richard Mosse, the infrared transforms those neutral colors into a red, almost pink landscape. His images of the Congo are beautiful and haunting -- not to mention a little strange.
