Robert Nzaou-Kissolo is a Congolese photographer who lives between the cities of Cape Town in South Africa and Pointe Noire in the Republic of Congo. His photo essay catpures the nightscape of Pointe Noire, Congo.

“Like most African cities the Congolese economic capital doesn’t sleep at night. With almost no street lights in existence capturing the vibrancy of the city after sundown can be a challenge.

After sunset the coastal city gets really dark, all you can see are pockets of light proudly sponsored by stalls, shops, markets, car lights, pubs, hair salons…I spent months staying up chasing the light to capture these moments.

This project is meant to take you for a night walk through the busy streets of Pointe Noire Congo.”
