When I saw this picture it simply reminded me of the book Gentlemen of Bacongo by Daniele Tamagni. Stylish gentlemen with a spark of their own.
Photographer Daniele Tamagni captures the fascinating subculture of the Congo. The movement knowN as le Sape or le Sapeur, combines French styles from their colonial roots and the individual's (often flamboyant) style. It is an interesting look into style and the many ways it is expressed.
