- What led you to go and discover the faces of the famous “Chinafrica”?

Lieve Joris – I wrote three books on the DRC in quick succession: The Leopard’s Dance, The Rebels’ Hour and The High Plains. After my long immersion in the Congo, I was completely exhausted and  I felt the need to experience other human adventures and to breathe some different air. Between 2009 and 2012, I spent 18 months travelling between Canton, Shanghai and the towns of the interior in the footsteps of Africans living in China, but also went to Kinshasa, Brazzaville and Cape Town, with Chinese people living in Africa.
