Publisher's Description:

The most recent project of Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer; a sharp image of Congo as it is today. De Keyzer has visited places that were tourist hotspots before their independence and thus shows us the remains of the Belgian presence in modern Congo. Carl De Keyzer traveled through Congo for over 10 months to make this book, often in very dangerous areas. This has resulted in a unique documentary with an historic meaning.
