07.17.11 DRC: Inkisi

leave a comment »

When I read about Obama’s promising initiative called “Powering Africa” in the New York Times yesterday, I thought about the nights I spent in Inkisi, Democratic Republic of Congo, watching my hosts cook dinner with the light of an LED lamp. Similar to the Headlamp Series, the images below capture glimpses of typically public scenes that seem to become intimate and private in the dark. I can only imagine how this courtyard will be transformed when the electricity works through the night.
