Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren, Carl De Keyzer and Johan Lagae selected 100 photographs of Belgian Congo which have never been published before. The concept was not so much a historical overview of photography in Belgian Congo, but rather a presentation of "talking images" that are the fall-out of a "voyage of discovery" throughout the collections of the Royal Museum in Tervuren.
Carel De Keyzer, a Belgian top photographer and member of the renowned agency Magnum, created a number of photographs that provide a penetrating picture of the vestiges of Belgium in modern Congo. He followed the route of tourist attractions from the colonial period as described in an old travel guide; The result is a unique series of photographs with historical significance, which is confrontational because it evokes questions about the way Belgium fleshed out colonization from the architectural and urban viewpoint, as well as about the causes of the present state of chaos and decay.
