Kiripi Katembo (1979-2015) photographs the urban chaos of the metropolis of Kinshasa, bringing out both its absurdity and its beauty. The use of reflections, vertiginous views, flattened perspectives, contrasting colours and saturation of blacks makes Kinshasa and other similar cities more dazzling than ever. With the poetic touch and the attentive gaze of an impressionist, he manages to bring the rapidly mutating urban landscape to a halt. In one single shutter time he captures the reality and gives it a dreamy, often surreal, expression. By shifting focus Katembo makes the unattractive attractive, renders the transient timeless and unveils that what should have been kept hidden. Kiripi Katembo was one of the most promising artists of his generation, and his protean work has won numerous international awards. This monograph offers a superb condensation of his most fascinating series.
