Fabis | South Western Uganda


I met this interesting lady last year while visiting some old friends in Western Uganda. I was truly captivated by the muted colours and wilderness of scene that unfolded in front of me.

30 year old Fabis has two children and works around 8 hours a day in the fields and banana groves earning 2500 ugx (50p) per day, in the village of Kachwekano. She suffers with bad eyesight.

This young girl and her sister came running down the hill, her sister strapped to her back as she bounced bare foot over the grass, through a bush and to the house I was spending time in.

As my local village was showing me around his home, she kept peering inside, keen to no doubt get a look at the weird white man with a camera!

After a while, she began to walk away, I stopped her and grabbed my Nikon – she just stood and smiled and the moment was captured!
