Richard Mosse was born in 1980 in Ireland and is based in New York. In 2013, he represented Ireland in the Venice Biennale with The Enclave, a six-channel video installation that utilized 16mm infrared film. Since Venice, the work has been exhibited extensively, most recently at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark, and Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, among many other venues. In November 2016, Mosse was nominated for the Prix Pictet, the global award in photography and sustainability. As part of the nomination, Heat Maps will be exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, opening May 4th, 2017, and then will travel globally.
