Clam Diving

"The Mangrove National Park at the estuary of the Congo River is a veritable maze of islands and channels," says Your Shot photographer Kris Pannecoucke. "Women like Séphora dive up to 4 metres down in the dark waters for clams. They sell skewers with clam meat in the cities of Muanda and Boma."
