Richard Mosse Uses a Military-Grade Thermal Camera to Photograph Refugees
In this chaotic and polarizing new era, showing signs of a radical shift towards nationalism and the extreme right, Incoming charts the refugee crisis unfolding across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. War, persecution, climate change, and other factors have forced a global crisis of human displacement, the largest migration of people since WWII, with more than a million people crossing into the European Union each year since 2014. In response, conceptual documentary photographer and filmmaker Richard Mosse, in collaboration with composer Ben Frost and cinematographer Trevor Tweeten, has created an immersive multi-channel video installation employing an advanced thermal surveillance camera.
