This is a FREE gallery of limited-edition prints from a 2013 expedition to across the Congo River Basin from Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, to Juba, in South Sudan. These prints accompany a forthcoming book--Crossing the Congo--also on sale at the gallery. See here for more details and to see some of the prints and here for the accompanying YouTube video.
Of the journey Sir Ranulph Fiennes said:
‘A remarkable story of psychological and physical endurance, and a compelling account of what pushes people to embark on impossible journeys.'
Whilst traversing 2,500 miles of the toughest terrain on the planet in a twenty-five year-old Land Rover, they faced repeated challenges, from kleptocracy and fire ants to non-existent roads and intense suspicion from local people. Through imagination and teamwork — including building rafts and bridges, conducting makeshift surgery in the jungle and playing tribal politics — they got through. These prints tell the story.
Crossing the Congo is an offbeat travelogue, a story of friendship and what it takes to complete a great journey against tremendous odds, and an intimate look into one of the world’s least-developed and most fragile states, told with humour and sensitivity. This event is a gallery of limited-edition prints from the expedition.
The limited-edition prints are on sale for very reasonalbe prices.
