Congo Democratic

Guy Tillim

Congo Democratic

This large format book was jointly published by Renate Wiehager, Michael Stevenson and Galleria Extraspazio (Rome) with the support of DaimlerChrysler AG. Guy Tillim took this series of images in July 2006 during the weeks of the Democratic Republic of Congo's first general election held since successive conflicts in the late 1990s killed 3.5 million people. The images mirror the political wasteland and civic disorder that resulted from the rivalry between presidential candidates Etinenne Tshisikedi and President Josef Kabila.
