Pirogue race photos

Finally, a few photos:

Bozize gives a thumb's up to the crowd (note the stylish life preserver/suit color coordination):

And they're off:

Photos shot by Pichou Stone (, professional photographer based in Bangui and Paris.


  1. I would love to see more photos of Bangui but link here didn't work. A quick google didn't do the trick either. Is there another place that I might be able to see additional photos by Pichou?

  2. Hi,

    You can try emailing her -- pichoustone at (she speaks some English, but French would be easier). Bangui internet connections are so slow that it's hard to get much online, and most of her work is of the candid portraits variety (selling the snaps from parties, ceremonies, etc.) I'm sure she'd appreciate the interest!

    Take care,
