Back to Africa…

_JWC9876_2Calling all 35mm camera donations…!

I’m returning to Uganda in a few weeks and I urgently require any old 35mm cameras you may have.

The project ‘give a child a camera’ is continuing in 2016 and I need donations of cameras to enable this to happen.

Please get in touch if you can help.

A little about this image…

I visited the home of Godwin on a Saturday afternoon in February. I arrived somewhat sweaty and exhausted from a day walking miles upon miles.

Godwin (not pictured) stood proudly with his camera, taking photographs and almost mimicking some of my movements and style..his pictures demonstrated a true insight into his life and feelings.

Although one of the poorest households I visited, the underlying dignity and togetherness was a joy to witness.

 

Ugandan Grandmother

“Grandmother” taken in rural Southwest Uganda 2015.

Perhaps not one of my most creative photographs, but the presence of colour on her clothing and the dignified look on her face really makes this one stand out.

This picture didn’t make it to the final cut of images for the exhibition or book, but still remains a favourite of mine
