showgirls in Kinshasa, Congo, 1960s by Jean Depara. 
Completely fallen in love with Jean Depara’s photos of nightlife in 1960s Kinshasa, Congo. 
From their nylon stockings to the fabric celebrating President De Gaulle’s 1958 visit to the neighboring French Congo (today The Republic of Congo) and his promise of independence for France’s African Colonies. 
This quartet of showgirls - with their chiffon gloves, sequins and tulle - in spite of seeming hardened are rippling with hope, glamour and modernity. 
Love it.
