Sarah Waiswa


Documentary and portrait photographer Sarah Waiswa (1980, Uganda, based in Kenya) has a strong interest in exploring identity on the African continent, particularly the New African Identity. After receiving both her sociology and psychology degrees and working in a corporate position for a number of years, she decided to pursue photography full time. Her desire is to illustrate the plight of various social issues on the continent in a contemporary and non-traditional way, aiming to change the narrative on Africa by generating dialogue on developing issues as they happen. Waiswa sets out to create visual poetry while telling stories in the most organic and creative way possible.
