Congo by Yvon Léolein

Congo by Yvon Léolein

15 years after a period of fratricidal wars in the history of Brazzaville, 15 years of peace, stability, Brazzaville could have hoped for better living conditions. A real social policy, youth work, a fair distribution of wealth …
I have read a city where it is normal to pay its water and electricity bills without the benefit of these services. I was in a city where its inhabitants have stopped fighting, preferring as some (the fire) take refuge in religion tissue to escape their daily misery.

I was in Congo, Brazzaville, a beautiful city that comes alive despite his ailments by friendly people looking at you, you, with your prejudices abroad and tells you smile in the eyes “Mbote! ”
Thus summarized the essence of this work. One might think that it’s just a travel diary made by the artist, but it is mainly a declaration on the degradation of the social fabric of a country, the energy crisis, environmental problems, immigration sub regional, standards of living of a city, a country and by extension Africa because we meet in this city a condensed scourges plaguing the continent.
