Photo call out: Le Rêve (The Dream)
Born in Quésso, Congo, in 1981, Baudouin Mouanda lives in Braz- zaville. Mouanda is a Congolese photographer, co-founder of Collectif Génération Elili and member of Afrique in visu. He has contributed to numerous international journals and has received numerous awards, including the Prix de la Francophonie and grants for artist-in-residence programs that have allowed him to travel to many African countries.
The “photographer of life,” as he defines himself, began his career in 1993. At this early stage, he was nicknamed ‘Pho- touin’ for his chronicles of Brazzavillian life, the capital and largest city of the Republic of Congo, as published in local newspapers. He rapidly developed a personal style. One of his first works in black-and-white, “The Aftermath of War,” focuses on the recent history of his country. His artistic recognition in Africa began with the Best Photographer of the Academy of Fine Arts Award in Kinshasa. In 2007 as a residence in Paris, Mouanda crossed paths with the Congolese diaspora, and the famous kings of “sape.” Back in Brazzaville in 2008, he photographed the most beautiful “sapeurs” of the Congolese capital.
