Feature - Belgian Embassy in Kinshasa
Carl De Keyzer
Built in the 1950s in what was at the time the Belgian Congo ( today's Democratic Republic of Congo - DRC ), the imposing Belgian Embassy in Kinshasa has now been moved from the thick of the city to a gleaming new home, on a 1.3 hectare site in a prestigious neighbourhood of the Congolese capital. It is the largest diplomatic mission in the country.
As Magnum photographer Carl de Keyzer documented the last moments of the old embassy, and the construction of the new one, his images offer a glimpse behind the scenes of daily diplomatic life in the country.
