“I hold in my hands a tool capable of showing what some refuse to consider as the appalling management of the urban environment,” he wrote about his acclaimed 2009 series “Un regard.” “Photography also provides a way of seeing beyond reflection as it opens up a poetic window on another world, the world in which I live. I want each image to tell of the children born here who have to grow up surrounded by pools of water, and of the families who survive while others leave to live in exile.” Kiripi Katembo, who died of cerebral malaria at the age of 36.
