Alex Majoli and Paolo Pellegrin are two Italian photographers who are part of the agency Magnum Photos.
For their latest work of reportage, they spent a two years in Congo, seeking to capture through their photographs the history and the people.
The project was born through the collaboration of the two photographers with the charitable foundation ‘Lynx for hope’ and has the literary contribution by Alain Mabanckou; it aims to show the reader evolution, social and cultural contradictions in the region of Congo.
Thanks to the revealing use of black and white and to the photographers’ journalistic eye, the book gives us view into the daily life of Congo and reveals its most hidden aspects.
