Richard Mosse

I was coasting through blogs and images at 4 in the morning (someone please help me, I need a better sleeping pattern) when I came across these wonderful photos by Richard Mosse.
  His clever use of colour means the jungle is no longer a mere background, a setting: it becomes forced into the forefront of our vision. A marvellous explosion, thundering through the landscape. I noticed my eyes became more focused on the textural quality of the plants - very intriguing. It also, I feel, heightens the sense of isolation, and alienation, of being swallowed up by nature. And of wonder; I want to explore those candy cane mountains.
