sapeurs of congo

Cape Town, South Africa – American singer, songwriter, model and actress, Solange shoots video for her song, Losing You. The video features members of Le Sapeur community – a Congolese subculture that has its own fairly established chapter in South Africa. Solange was inspired by the work of Italian photographer Daniele Tamagni, who shot and collected images of the La SAPE (Société des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes) community in his book, Gentlemen of Bacongo.
