A bilingual French-English monograph, Congo in Conversation is co-edited by Reliefs Editions and the Carmignac Foundation.
The images are accompanied by a conversation with Mark Sealy, curator and Director of Autograph ABP in London, who focuses on the relationship between photography, racial issues and human rights, Finbarr O'Reilly, and Emeric Glayse, Director of the Carmignac Photojournalism Prize.
Our mission on this side of the Equator is to think about how to generate and tell more complex stories, and to help the public look differently. We need to break the shackles of these visual shackles that weigh down the representation of African countries and devalue them historically and culturally.
