Georges Senga (CD)
8 x digital photographs
Senga’s work focuses on Kidiwa, a father of 7, who lost his sight in 2013, and has been living in Kinshasa without a job and in extreme poverty ever since. The photos of Kidiwa before, during and after sight-restoring surgery focus on the life-altering effects of regaining one’s vision. These rare insights of hope tell the story of what is possible, if we act together to give everyone the right to sight.
