Richard Mosse: Infra

The decades of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo have taken an unimaginable toll on the country, over 5.4 million deaths, and 400,000 rapes. This climate of perpetual violence, without clear heroes but with unimaginable numbers of victims, defies concise summary. Using infrared film developed by the US Millitary, Richard Mosse transports the soldiers and surrounding jungles of the Congo into an uncanny fluorescent and rose tinted reality. The human eye is blind to the light captured here. Infra confronts the blindspots of documentary photography in the face of political disorder, and attempts a stark reconsideration of the most violent war since World War II.

Infra is on view at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, starting tomorrow, through October 21. To see more from the series, as well as the photographer, visit richardmosse.com.

August 9, 1945: An atomic bomb is dropped on Nagasaki.

Three days after the bombing of Hiroshima, a second atomic bomb - “Fat Man” - was detonated over Nagasaki, the third detonation of such a weapon in history. After the bombing of Hiroshima, Harry Truman delivered another message of warning to Japan, saying:

If they do not now accept our terms, they may expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth.

Between the August 6 bombing and Japan’s surrender, approximately six million propaganda leaflets were dropped over dozens of Japanese towns. Nagasaki, like Hiroshima, was chosen for its military importance - it was a seaport and an industrial center, and it was also home to around 200,000 people. Of these, an estimated 39,000 were killed in the initial bomb blast, and thousands more died later from injuries and exposure to radiation. The temperature of the blast reached 3,900 °C. 

Other atomic bombs were prepared for further attacks, but Japan surrendered (via radio broadcast) on August 15, six days later.

8/6/45: HIROSHIMA

On Sunday morning, August 6, an American warplane flew over Hiroshima, a Japanese army base on the Inland Sea.  It dropped a single bomb.  When that missile struck the earth, it blew up in the greatest man-made explosion in the history of the world.  The United States had loosed an atomic bomb on Japan.

This day in history:

In the hours following the assassination of Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana, mass killings of Tutsis and moderate Hutus begin within the country led by members of the Rwandan military and extremist Hutu militias, marking the first day of the Rwandan Genocide.

Over the next 100 days an estimated 800,000 people would be killed.

April 7, 1994 - 18 years ago today.

Forcing women to get transvaginal ultrasounds: Virginia Gov. Bob McDonaldwanted to force every woman seeking an abortion to go through the extremely uncomfortable and medically unnecessary procedure of a transvaginal ultrasound — sticking a medical wand far into a woman’s vagina to get a clearer ultrasound image.

Ordering women to cremate and bury their miscarried fetus: A huge abortion omnibus bill in Michigan could force women who miscarry to cremate the miscarried fetuses. This comes at no small expense to the woman: cremation of a fetus costs hundreds of dollars, and interment can be additional thousands. The bill has been passed by the Michigan House, and is awaiting a vote by the Michigan Senate.

Requiring doctors to lie to female patients: In Kansas, Republicans tried to force doctors to tell women that they faced risk of cancer from having an abortion. That is patently untrue, and making doctors say that it was true would be, in effect, requiring them to lie to their patients.

Making a dying woman consult two doctors before she can get a life-saving abortion: The New Hampshire legislature just overrode a veto by the Governor, forcing through a law that bans “partial birth” abortions. The law only reinforces federal law, but has the additional requirement that any woman who is exempt from the abortion ban because her life is at risk must visit not one but two doctors before she can get the procedure to save her life. For many rural women, especially those facing life-threatening conditions, this is near impossible.

Mandating people pay extra to give medical device companies a tax break: Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN) worked so hard to protect medical device companies from having to pay, that he has instead passed their costs onto the consumer — regular Americans — by increasing the cost of health coverage.

I just threw up in my mouth a little.
