VISIONS | PHOTO JOURNAL Andrew McConnell With a small fish in his mouth and a giant one in his hands, a Wagenia villager harvests the Lualaba River. Every day I was there I ate delicious fish---tiger fish, catfish, perch, and more---often cooked in banana leaves with chili and palm oil. The Wagenia learn to fish at an early age. Young girls (like the one at left) use nets in the small rapids. Boys emulate their fathers, building miniature baskets and working in the shallows. For shots like this I covered my camera in a waterproof housing.
