– Kazimir Ostoja Zagourski (1880-1941) was born in Poland and moved to Congo in 1924. He was the first professional photographer to travel throughout the interior of Congo and visited also the neighbouring countries, Tcad, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Kenya and South Africa. During his long stay in Africa he took hundreds of pictures. – This photographic reportage from the Twenties and Thirties brings back the memory of ways of living, ceremonies, adorned bodies of an Africa, that can be aptly defined as „lost“.
