Stephan Würth: Ikinga

Text by Joseph Akel.

In late 2013, photographer Stephan Würth embarked on a whirlwindroad trip, winding his way across Burundi, a small landlocked nation in the heart of East Africa. Snapping images on a hidden iPhone during his journey, Würth portrays everyday life in the impoverished country, from the bustling open-air markets of its capital, Bujumbura, to the plantations of sweet banana and coffee deep in the country’s foothills. The photographs highlight the integral role the bicycle—or ikinga—plays in Burundi’s culture. With a candid eye that recalls Walker Evans’ surreptitious subway shots of New York in the 1930s, Würth’s photographs reveal a lively, resourceful and entrenched bicycle culture that is vital not only to Burundi’s economy, but also to the daily survival of its countrymen. At times playful and intimate, Ikinga is a bold meditation upon the power of creativity and improvisation during times of great difficulty.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Hyperallergic

Carey Dunne

Today, violence in Burundi is worsening once again... The peaceful images from Ikinga aren’t meant [to] sugarcoat a dire situation, but they offer a visual counterpoint that balances such sentiments.

Rebecca Bengal

Würth’s pictures don’t examine the political strife in the country, but rather the movement of day-to-day life. A sense of liberation and joy was apparent in the ikinga culture he encountered, and it’s plainly evident in these images.
