Alexandre Van Enst's 'Elegance Road' [Gallery]

Take a look at Alexander Van Enst's 'Elegance Road,' an award winning collection of photos featuring the Sapeurs of Congo.

Pictures of the Year International recently rewarded Alexandre Van Enst with the Award of Excellence for his piece “Elegance Road,” a montage of photos shedding light on the Congolese trend setters calling themselves the "Societe des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Elegantes,” or Sapeurs. In these award-winning stills, Van Enst captures the revolutionary fashionistas in a juxtaposition between rustic metal and futuristic garments. Draped in vividly colored kilts while toting canes and black leather handbags, the Sapeurs illuminate the earth-toned roads as they posture in creativity and dignity.
