“Les Sapeurs" are a unique group of people who wanders the streets of Kinshasa with expensive designer clothes despite the poverty around them.  Although their appearance could indicate they are very different from other men in Congo – all the men in this photo have a family with kids and a normal job.<br />
When I shot this photo, I wanted to capture the chaos around them. We were in down town of Kinshasa, with lots of noise, cars and people. But these men were still so calm and cool. I put my camera on a tripod and with a long exposure I got what I wanted.
