Broken Spectre is Richard Mosse's most ambitious work to date - a 74 minute film that shifts between ecological narratives, anthropocentric documentary and careful examination of nonhuman violence and survival. The work also takes the form of a new book, published by Loose Joints, and sharing the same title, that pushes the boundaries of photography in a way only Mosse can. Join the artist and his collaborators Ben Frost and Trevor Tweeten for an intimate conversation at Reference Point, moderated by Sophie Darlington, discussing this work, his career oeuvre and their time spent in the Amazon. The talk will be followed by DJs and drinks, and an opportunity to purchase the book and have it signed by Mosse.

Broken Spectre will be showing at 180 Galleries - to see this work purchase the exhibition and talk ticket and visit the gallery from 6pm on the day of the talk.
