Richard Mosse's photography captures the beauty and horror of war and destruction. Born in Ireland and now based in New York, Mosse (b. 1980) has worked in many different countries and has spent years in the Amazon exposing the tragedy unfolding there.
With a selection of images from his series, Tristes Tropiques and Broken Spectre, this book shows what happens when what Mosse calls two 'opposite worlds' collide in his work. Both heartbreaking and startlingly beautiful.
The Tate Photography Series presents some of the most significant photographers in the world today. Each book focuses on an individual photographer and includes a specially selected image sequence and an introduction by a Tate curator, along with a conversation about each photographer's practice.
The unifying theme for series two is Ecology and the Environment, with photographers examining aspects of our relationship with the natural world, the environment and the changing climate.
