hilarious photos.

all the pictures are jst incredible.....except that when he was in uganda did take much photos....but hope he'll come back.

Incredible photos on your website. Thanks.

Its nice, I love how its landscape art too.

To far more fully see the power, scope and heart of this photographer/artist's work, it would be wise to tour the artist's website. He has artistic work, photojournalistic work and work, such as the "infra" series, that blends those two, most often disparate genres. Powerful and impressive work throughout. He also creates quite clever and thought-provoking videos sure to kick off much discussion. As a former soldier, I was touched, healed, provoked and prodded by his work. After viewing his site, I gave him a strong 4.

North Kivu, Eastern Congo, 2011

I was checking out Mosse's website and found the picture in his album titled, Infra. So that tells us something about why it's pink. He made something beautiful out of...well you should all check out the rest of the album ( though its not as fantasy friendly as these pics)

Excellent! Is this Earth or another planet where photosynthesis turns everything pink instead of green? I'd like to go there.

This is very good for our eyes --- thank you ---
