Pieter Henket – Congo Tales

Pieter Henket is a New York based photographer who has photographed some of the world’s top stars. In this project, Congo Tales, he turns his eye toward ecological efforts – photographing the people, culture and ecology of the Congo Basin; one of the world’s largest rainforests. Rather than go for shocking, sad or ‘expected’ photography to highlight an area like this, he has used his fine-art / portrait style to create images that serve not only as warnings to us about the importance of looking after our planet but also as beautiful pieces on their own.
