My second 2021 private expedition is not an expedition in the true sense of the word.  It is like a city visit but not just to any city.  Kinshasa in Congo DRC is home to a culture of people called La Sape, or Sapeurs, who are sometimes referred to as Congo dandies.  People who worship brands and expensive clothes, the Sapeurs of Kinshasa are known for their acute fashion sense while living in some of the city’s poorest areas.  I am planning to spend a week in Kinshasa with an experienced local guide meeting and photographing Sapeur men and women while learning about their culture and photographing them in all their finery.

Dates for  this expedition are yet to be fixed but it will likely take place around mid February.
