In 2020, British-Canadian photographer Finbarr O’Reilly was awarded the prestigious Carmignac Photojournalism Award for his reportage on the Democratic Republic of the Congo. What had started out as a photojournalistic venture, evolved into the group project ‘Congo in Conversation’ – whereby eleven Congolese photographers documented life in the DRC: Arlette Bashizi, Dieudonne Dirole, Charly Kasereka, Justin Makangara, Guylain Balume Muhindo, Guerchom Ndebo, Raissa Karama Rwizibuka, Moses Sawasawa, Pamela Tulizo, Ley Uwera, and Bernadette Vivuya.
This January, their work will be presented in an outdoor exhibition at the gates of the Tour Saint-Jacques in Paris. The group showcase is accompanied by a dual-language monograph (French and English) featuring an introduction by Dr. Mark Sealy, curator and director of the Autograph Gallery in London.
