A guy who has the ethics and esthetics in order. Besides he seems to know a great deal about society and social issues as well. I hope his work will be a contribution to peace!

The uniforms of the soldiers are also plants?
because they should be green, but became pink/red in the film.
it is no "infrared-filming". it is just a color-swap from green to red.
sorry, im calling bulls&"§ on that one.
evidence is strong

#3 You obviously don't know much about photography. This is real.
Check out some of the still photos here and you will see plenty with all colours, including green, but still with fields of pink/red in the background. "evidence is strong" What do you mean by this, where's your evidence? Have you even looked at this guys website?
(i) Some images (particularly no3) on that link may be shocking.

it is not infrared photography. simple as that.
first of all, every human would have a corona of light surrounding them.
second EVERYTHING would be redshifted.
If you take green - red and blue and leave out the green.
What do you get? Pink / Red / Violett.
Thats what this mister does. He just filters out the green.
No magic here, move along

#5 (i) "Using a discontinued type of coloured infrared film called Kodak Aerochrome, originally used by military surveillance to detect camouflage, Mosse travelled to eastern Congo to photograph rebel groups fighting in the Congolese jungle for his series Infra. The film registers the infrared spectrum of light invisible to the naked eye and renders the green landscape in bright hues of pink, crimson and lavender.

Mosse actually made his Congo trip twice. "My original two-month jaunt was made in vain, evaporating into a sea of double-exposed 8x10 inch landscapes," he says. "This single mistake cost me a 100 precious sheets of this discontinued infrared film stock. I knew I’d made a grievous error after returning across front lines from rebel territory only to discover that both boxes of film seemed to be mislabelled. 'This one says that it’s exposed but I distinctly remember it being unexposed. And this one says that it’s unexposed, but I feel that’s not the case. Well,' I realised, 'I have a 50 percent chance of it working out.' I lost."

Look at the 'Technical Data' PDF at the bottom of this page:

Shows exactly how the film works, and how it initially blocks BLUE light, and is then reverse processed. Is this enough 'Evidence' to prove you wrong, 'Curator'?

it's just colorswapping ...and i agree: "evidence is strong" everything in green is turned to red..... i don't like this vid... no....i hate it....
