RICHARD MOSSE | Via Goma
Issue 12It is one year since I first visited the Congo. On that journey, my impulse was an unravelling of forms, of method, of purpose.

Issue 11WARS (NEW HAVEN) WAS PHOTOGRAPHED in the parking lot of an Ikea housed in Marcel Breuer’s Pirelli Building, designed in 1969. This Brutalist monolith looms over Interstate 95 as you drive into New Haven, overlooking the shore of Long Island Sound.
