Kin is a social photography project in the city of Kinshasa. Characters made from recycled cans, wire and refuse are photographed and stop animation is used to show the lives of the residents in Kinshasa. Much like the waste of others is used to create the characters, the people of Kinshasa use recycling creatively and think outside of the can to solve problems.
