About Sarah Waiswa

I am a Ugandan born Kenya based documentary and portrait photographer with an interest in exploring identity on the African continent, particularly the New African Identity. After getting both my sociology and psychology degrees and working in a corporate position for a number of years, I decided to pursue photography full time. It was one of the hardest/easiest decisions I ever made but it feels great to do what I am passionate about. My desire is to illustrate the plight of various social issues on the continent, in a contemporary and non-traditional way. I hope to help change the narrative on Africa by generating dialogue on developing issues as they happen. I am passionate about creating visual poetry and telling stories in the most organic and creative way possible.
