Patrick Willocq: On the road from Bikoro to Bokonda (Western DRC)
*I don’t usually reblog but lensculture has done another feature on Willocq and he deserved more attention.
Willocq, through long term immersion in these villages, worked with the Batwa Pygmies and Bantu life in the province of Equateur (DRC) to create poignant images depicting complex themes on education, religion, the relationship between men and women, the role of the forest and globalization. These ‘bush theatres’ are artistically driven but yet reflect fundamental social problems and development needs.
Artist Statement via lensculture:
[…] I also wanted to go beyond images conveyed by Western media and show a Congo that we are not used to see because too often buried in images of war. I specifically wanted to witness the peace that prevails in the West, a different reality than the Eastern Congo. A reality that Western media regularly focus on and, although dramatic, stigmatizes the whole country.
