A WWII Kodak film type once used to detect camouflage revived in a photo documentary on the Congo (VIDEO)

Kodak Aerochrome was a film type designed for the U.S. Military in WWII to help detect camouflage. The long since decommissioned film registers an invisible spectrum of infrared light, turning green landscapes into warm hues.

Photographer Richard Mosse has taken this film process and revived it for his new photo series ‘The Enclave.’ The project is meant to blend reality with fiction in highlighting the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo. Currently 70 million people are enduring one of the globes most dire human rights struggles in the Central African Country.
