Interview with Richard Mosse, 2017, produced by Michael Kurcfeld, 10 minutes, Courtesy Michael Kurcfeld and Paris Photo

Artist Richard Mosse (Irish, born 1980) discusses Incoming, his three-channel video that depicts fragments of events along two major migration routes leading into Europe from the Middle East and Africa. The work was filmed with a highly specialized surveillance camera designed for military use that captures images by detecting thermal radiation, including the heat of a human body, from more than 18 miles away. A highly immersive experience that presents the sights and sounds of a contemporary crisis, Incoming is both unsettling and mesmerizing and reveals the “harsh, disparate, unpredictable, and frequently tragic narratives of migration and displacement.”
