Lecture in Photography: Richard Mosse

The Art Institute of Chicago - Rubloff Auditorium, 230 S. Columbus Drive, Chicago, IL

Lecture in Photography: Richard Mosse

Richard Mosse’s photography captures the beauty and tragedy in war and destruction. Mosse has shot abandoned plane wrecks in the furthest reaches of the planet and the former palaces of Uday and Saddam Hussein now occupied by US military forces. His most recent series, Infra, captures the ongoing war between rebel factions and the Congolese national army in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Lectures in Photography are co-presented by the MoCP and the Department of Photography at Columbia College Chicago. This program is presented in partnership with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Visiting Artists Program.
