About the book by Jorre Both (GUP Magazine):

“The book Congo Tales combines epic scenes in full colour, set within the context of the tropical rainforest, with intimate portraits of the mythical characters in black and white.”

In the middle of the Congo rainforest, the people of Mbomo lead isolated lives in harmony with nature. Their oral history, filled with folkloric tales and myths, has never been written down or shared outside of their community. New York-based photographer Pieter Henket (b. 1979, The Netherlands), perhaps best known for his pictures of world-famous celebrities, travelled to the Congo with his team in order to capture these stories for the very first time.

Henket documented the locals while they prepared for and acted out their own myths, with titles such as The Birds and the Forging Stone, The Poisoned Antelope and The Pregnant Woman and the Drought. The book Congo Tales combines epic scenes in full colour, set within the context of the tropical rainforest, with intimate portraits of the mythical characters in black and white.
