Reportage photographer Jonathan Torgovnik is among the photographers whose work is on display in “I Dream of Congo: Narratives From the Great Lakes,” an exhibition at Conway Hall in London until Feb. 23.
‘I Dream of Congo: Narratives from The Great Lakes’ will be a unique exhibition combining words and images from renowned international creatives alongside a groundbreaking exhibition of photos taken by women in eastern Congo.
The exhibition and accompanying events will celebrate the hope and optimism that pervades in the region despite years of war. It will also pose hard questions around the international community’s inaction in the face of the conflict, the continuing illicit trade in minerals from Congo and the failure to stem the tide of sexual violence.
The show is being produced by Congo Connect, a UK-based organization that raises awareness about issues affecting eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Read more about the show on the Congo Connect Web site.
