CARL DE KEYZER »CONGO BELGE / CONGO BELGE EN IMAGES« – selected by FRITS GIERSTBERG

»‘Congo’ is a long-term research project by an outstanding documentary photographer on a topical issue: the problematic situation in present-day Congo, which is a former Belgian colony (in fact, it was the private property of the Belgian king). In the beautifully produced large format double book, De Keyzer’s photographs are combined with historical images. ‘Congo’ is an important contribution to the current political debate about post-colonial Africa, and raises historical awareness in a very contemporary and convincing visual manner.«
