I am a documentary photographer based in Uganda, Holding a BA in Industrial Art and Design at the Margaret Trowell School of Art, Makerere University, Uganda. My interest in photography started in secondary when my father gave me a point-and-shoot camera, and that experience quickly developed into a passion for observing, questioning, and caring about other people through visual language.
I have participated in numerous workshops and trainings in Uganda including the UPPA & Canon Storytelling Workshop in 2017 with Georgina Goodwin. I won Uganda Press Photo Award's Young Photographer Award in 2017 and as a result, I undertook an intensive mentorship programme the following year under the mentorship of Frederick Noy. As a result, I created a body of work titled “The Network”.
I believe that photography is a very important part of storytelling because it creates memories and intimacy. Working as a photographer helps me to question and understand the world around me.
