Robert Nzaou - The Madia Ya Bwala Series

Robert Nzaou's Madia Ya Bwala series is a photography project that documents both indigenous food and indigenous peoples in the Congo. The series is a collection of portraits telling the stories of people living in regions where traditional food remains the way of life, focusing on their eating habits and culture. The project highlights how traditional foods are still the healthiest option and that a slow and sustainable way of life can be fulfilling.

A 2019 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network helped cover travel expenses and photography equipment.
