Marek Stawski was born in Poland in 1956 and has lived in Amsterdam since 1977. He has travelled extensively in Morocco, Egypt, Senegal, Congo and Uganda. His work has been published in a range of magazines and exhibited in the Netherlands, Belgium and Poland. He was a researcher for the VPRO series In Europe.
In 1986 – almost a hundred years after Joseph Conrad – Stawski travelled from Kinshasa to Kisangani on the Colonel Ebeya. With three thousand Congolese passengers he ventured up the majestic Congo River through the tropical rainforest. His photographs bring this exceptional journey to life.
