This magnificent large format edition is a 'best of' of photographer Angelo Turconi. Congo, Culture & Traditions compiles his most beautiful pictures and unique footage of his beloved Congo shot over a period of over half a century. This book is a precious photo archive, but at the same time a tribute to the vitality and resilience of the Congolese people. Included are rare images of rituals and traditions that now definitely belong in the past. A giant country like Congo with its huge ethnic diversity will always remain an inexhaustible source of wonder and astonishment. In five chapters, Congo-expert Turconi dwells on the country's nature, the daily life, its people, Congo's art and culture and the country's economy. Eminent ethnologist and art historian Francois Neyt wrote the introductory texts to the chapters, while Prof. Dr. Isidore Ndaywel e Nziem elucidates on the selected photographs
