DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO. 2012-2013. Produced in North and South Kivu. Film stills from The Enclave by Richard Mosse. [6/13]

The Irish photographer filmed strange footage of the country using a special surveillance film once used by the military. Picking up invisible infra-red rays given off by plant life, the film makes any greenery show up in ‘bubblegum’ pink, meaning guerilla soldiers could be spotted among the leaves.

Civil war has been happening in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo for many years. Since 1998, the nation has seen 5.4 million war-related deaths.

Men, it’s been a long war, it’s been a tough war. You’ve fought bravely, proudly for your country. You’re a special group. You’ve found in one another a bond that exists only in combat, among brothers. You’ve shared foxholes, held each other in dire moments. You’ve seen death and suffered together. I’m proud to have served with each and every one of you. You all deserve long and happy lives in peace.

According to Tumblr, Japan is:

A) a fragrant garden of anime elves
B) a pit of hell inhabited by racist devils
C) somehow, both at the same time!

The answer “Japan is a not very special country full of fallible human beings who often disagree with each other, like everywhere else in the world” is apparently unthinkable.
