Bukavu, D.R.C  March 2012
Taking pictures in D.R.C is not so easy, but its what i do.  I was out in the streets taking pictures when i got stopped by somebody in civilian clothes, who asked me to accompany him to the police station. I had a brief argument with him but proceeded anywhere.  After some drama at the station i was let free - long story short, i knew somebody who knew somebody who new somebody and the promise of future payments. Either way the cops where never hostile, just dramatic - no hard feelings.
