Congolese Photographer Captures The Beauty Of Daily Street Life In Puddles

Posted: Updated:

Next time you pass a puddle, take a look. You may find wonders inside. Consider "Un Regard," a photographic series by Kiripi Katembo Siku, set in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. In a twist on the classic genre of "daily life" photography, Katembo, a former painter, instead shows the city as it appears in reflection:

To do so, Katembo photographed the city's pools of dirty water and rain, focusing on the reflected images inside. Seen this way, Kinshasa is like a child's dream of a city, an effect that recalls the romantic spirit of the Impressionists. Not a bad trick for a little puddle.
