Irish photographer Richard Mosse latest work titled 'Platon, North Kivu, Eastern Congo' showcases images of a war-torn area in vivid colors. The images are currently on display at the Armory Show in New York from the 7th until the 10th of March.

The surreal images turn traditional notions of landscape portraiture on its head by remixing nature and replacing the green, rolling hills with acidic purple and pink hues. To create the images, the artist used a technique which involves a wooden field camera and the obscure Kodak aerochrome technique. It comes as no surprise that the method to create these trippy images was last popular with musicians like Jimi Hendrix and other psychedelia musicians from the late 1960s.

The macabre images, complete with skulls in long grass, inform the viewer about the horrors of war.
