Photographer's Note

This is the third in a serie to show you the elegance of African women. But it is quite different from the previous ones. This picture was taken in a privileged world (the MIBA recreative center)as compared to the unprivileged reality of the rest of Mbuji Mayi.

I was walking around when I met the local police sheriff and his family (3 son and 2 daughters)posing in front of a photographer.
I asked them if I could take a picture too, because they were so typically dressed for the circumstance("endimanchés" as we say in french!)... but, soon I realized that I was taking the "bread out of the mouth" of the local photographer (working with a very old analogic camera)...I promised to send the picture... but not before a long time so as to be sure that the local photographer will get paid for his work!

A rather static way of posing in front of the objective... but this was not my choice :-)
