Fabis | South Western Uganda

Fabis.

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.

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
