A few words about your artistic journey

I am a documentary photographer and my work shows a positive image of my community, focusing on social life. The issue of women and youth finds a considerable place in my pictures with the aim of breaking the stereotype of victimization and spreading hope.

How long have you been an artist ?

I’ve been interested in photography since 2017, but I’ve been a photographer for two years.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

I am applying for this grant to share my work with the largest audience possible. Since the project on which I am going to work has two main objectives, that of spreading hope and that of promoting the exploits of Congolese women even more during this period of crisis.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

- Brave du Kivu in order to praise the bravery of the people of Kivu.
- Badilisha who is going to confront the image that the West has of Africa and what Africans really are.
