Born in Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo, Baudouin Mouanda began his photographic journey in 1993 when his father offered him his first camera.
In 2009, he won the Young Talent Award at the African Photography Biennial for his works depicting the Sapeurs (which stands for the Societe des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Elegantes), band of Congolese men who turn the art of dressing into a cultural statement.
The photo series named “Les Sapeurs de Bacongo” is his most famous work to date and has generated tremendous interest from institutions and collectors around the world.
Mouanda has exhibited widely in museums and participated in several international exhibitions such as L’Art d’être un homme in 2009 at the Musée Dapper in Paris.
