Tala Ngai means “look at me” or “visit me” in Lingala. Drawing inspiration from classic portraiture, Lubondo has photographed young women from Kinshasa twice over: before and after they put on their makeup and get dressed, in other words, how they are at home, and how they present themselves in public. A third shot depicts some of the woman’s living space. This series invites us to reflect on self-perception and the external gaze, and provides a record of the lives of Kinshasa women in 2020.
