Jack Shainman Gallery presents “Heat Maps,” a new body of photographic work by Richard Mosse. Laumont collaborated with the artist on printing, mounting, and framing for this show on view at the Chelsea gallery.
In this project, Mosse documents the refugee crisis unraveling in Europe, the Middle East and North Ameria. He uses an extreme telephoto military-grade camera capable of detecting thermal radition, including body heat, from great distances. Instead of applying the camera for its intended purpose of border and combat surveillance, it is used to chart landscapes of human displacement. The images depict some of the millions of refugees and migrants who struggle with daily survival amidst a worldwide crisis.
The exhibition will be on display through March 11, 2017.
