'Congo in conversation': Photographing life in DR Congo amid the Covid-19 pandemic


We speak to award-winning British-Canadian photographer Finbarr O'Reilly, who was challenged to work with people in DR Congo to put together an exhibition of their work. The striking pictures, now on display in Paris, show the struggle of coping with the Covid-19 pandemic in DR Congo as people there carried on with their lives as best they could. O'Reilly says the photos show the degree of talent among photographers in DR Congo, adding that it's been a real pleasure to work with them.
