The Hayward Gallery has released a limited edition print with renowned Irish photographer Richard Mosse, a contributing artist to the Hayward Gallery’s exhibition, Dear Earth: Art and Hope in a Time of Crisis.
This collaboration will see 50% of proceeds from the sale of these exclusive editions go to the Hutukara Yanomami Association, a charity focused on advancing indigenous rights for communities across Brazil.
The limited edition print features an image taken from Mosse’s video Broken Spectre (2022). Still from Broken Spectre XIV (2022) is an aerial shot created by a specially-made Geographic Information System (GIS) imaging technology that Mosse and his team collected by drone. The same technology is also commonly used by scientists reporting on ecological damage and by companies looking for new mining and agribusiness prospects in the region. The photographs are made using multispectral imaging techniques to capture narrow bands of light at specific points across the electromagnetic spectrum, some of which are beyond human perception. The resulting colour and saturation in this work, while hauntingly beautiful, reveals the scale and extent of natural decimation in the Amazon Basin and related ecosystems.
