I know I've mentioned my love of Kinshasa-based photographer Lionel Healing's photographs before. He takes pictures for Agence France Presse and whoever else hires him, and he is incredibly talented. Be sure to check out the current front-page picture on his photoblog - and his other incredible shots of Congolese life and train travel in North Katanga. The use of light and shadow is just remarkable.
