The middle class of Mbandaka in old colonial Villas - Past/Present
Project info

An artistic documentary on the architectural face of colonial times and a testimony of the Congolese middle class in Mbandaka today. To delve into the inner privacy of the villas, I semi-direct the authorities and residents who work or live in these houses. These lend themselves to the game because they are themselves “actors” involved and committed to contributing to our project - that is to show a different reality of the country than the one western media focus on. The serie consists of “outdoor/indoor, past/present” diptychs for each house. - See more at: http://patrickwillocq.com/congo/old-colonial-villas-mbandaka#/0
