This project came together over several trips to a dozen villages in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It depicts a day in the life of the Bantu villages and Batwa Pygmies in what was once known as French Equatorial Africa. I photograph the villagers standing before their huts, which I treat as a kind of stage . The result is a series of “African tableaux.”
