Richard Mosse – Incoming

I went to see Richard Mosse’s Incoming show at the Barbican Curve Gallery yesterday. It’s incredibly powerful and moving, but also quite haunting to see how he captures the ongoing migrant crisis through film and images that both use military-grade cameras and a heat-sensitive film that gives everything from people, to built structures, to landscape a very ghostly quality. It ends today so probably hard for most of you to go see it but its worth looking into.
