Kiripi Katembo's "Un Regard" photo series

Photography // Friday, May 02, 2014
Congelese photographer Kiripi Katembo Siku began his career as a painter before moving to photography, and this transition becomes all the more apparent in his portrayal of daily life in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Entitled "Un Regard", Katembo captures the routines and vicissitudes of the denizens through reflections of dirty water and puddles, giving the series a painterly effect as if rendered from the hand of an impressionist.
