Kiripi Katembo – Un Regard
The Un regard series by Kiripi Katembo includes 19 images taken in the streets of Kinshasa. Puddles of water mirror a city where people, buildings, cars, mosquitoes, and rubbish live side by side. Katembo has managed to create a surprisingly poetic world this way. His photos are a plea for a cleaner, healthier environment.
Abdoulaye Barry – Pêcheurs de nuit
The 25 photographs of Pêcheurs de nuit by Abdoulaye Barry are portraits of fishermen living on the banks of Lake Chad. Barry took night shots of faces and activities, giving them a veiled and mysterious look. These photographs are silent witnesses to the fragile existence of the fisher folk and the dangers menacing their environment.
