WOMEN IN THE ARTS

I’ve never thought of photography as a ‘man’s profession’. I never did think about it really until I started getting questions from people about what it was like to be a female photographer. My undergrad photography tutor was a woman. That pushed me out of my comfort zone and I have since been inspired largely by female photographers. As a matter of fact, 80% of the most creative people I know and draw inspiration from are women even with the patriarchal societies still persistent on creating these little boxes and fitting women into them. 

The group of women in these photographs are so phenomenal, not just at what they do, pushing boundaries, but are also in possession of the most amazing personalities as well. It fills my heart with great joy that the younger and even older Ugandan women have these women to look up to. That I was able to document that is everything.
