Irish photographer Richard Mosse hasn’t had the most straightforward journey to becoming a photographer but it seems to be paying dividend as his portfolio is bursting at the seems with stunning shots.
Born in Dublin, he grew up in County Kilkenny before studying a BA in English Literature and a Masters in Cultural Studies from the London Consortium. Upon completion he pursued a Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art from Goldsmiths before finally earning an MFA in Photography from Yale University School of Art. Pictured is 707 Damascus, from January 2008 and the series The Fall.
