For more than 50 years, Angelo Turconi has been obsessed and bitten by the Democratic Republic of Congo. Even today, the passionate photographer continues to document the territory and the daily lives of the Congolese with equal enthusiasm.
The Tshokwe are a major people of Central Africa who have been present for six centuries on the borders of Zambia, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Their structured social organization gave them a military and commercial advantage.
Thanks to this dominant position, they have developed an artistic heritage which gradually became their main identity factor.
Today, there are two million Tshokwe, half of whom reside in Congo DRC. The people continue to assert their desire to exist through their culture. And the power of their art is internationally recognized.
This reference work allows us to discover the daily life of the Tshokwe but also their crafts, the symbolism of their masks, the power of their rites and the fervor of their popular festivals. It makes us understand how their attachment to tradition helps them to chart a course for the future.
Author Angelo Turconi has spent over fifty years photographing the artworks, culture and traditions of the DRC.
