happy to see this film out soon! i can vouch for the sheer amount of energy, time, work, difficulty, stress, sacrifice, risk, blood sweat tears and all the highs and lows that dan and horeb and the team went through to make this film a reality. perhaps the only film that not only says 'this is congo' but explains why congo is the way it is today. a true gift for the congolese. Check out the full-length version of the trailer here (link in profile): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WfWODjDYAk @this_is_congo @danielpmccabe @geoffreymc @alyseardell
PRINT SALE! Buy this signed, museum-quality, 6x6 inch (15.24 x 15.24 cm) print for $100, now until Friday. Order from the website in my profile. For those who purchased the first Congo airplane photograph, of children playing on abandoned airplanes in Goma, this image is from the same series, taken within the same hour in late 2012. Other signed and estate-stamped photographs are also available from over 70 colleagues at Magnum Photos! "If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough," Robert Capa famously said. Inspired by the Magnum co-founder's legacy, the CLOSER print collection explores the meaning of "the greatest war photographer's" maxim through classic and contemporary photographs.
mom saw this picture on my computer this morning, of the ingenious house joseph built a couple hundred kilometers outside kisangani, and said it reminded her of village kids she worked with in haiti and how they made their own toys out of tin cans, plastic bottles, "so innovative." guess thats why she wouldnt buy me a toy gun, as a kid i learned to make my own out of wood while neighbors had real plastic ones 🔫
