Sarah Waiswa is a Ugandan born photographer currently based in Nairobi, Kenya. Her work mainly focuses on portraiture and documentary, exploring issues of modernity and identity within Africa in which she calls a ” 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. It was one of the hardest/easiest decisions I ever made but it feels great to do what I am passionate about. Creating visual poetry and telling stories in the most organic and creative way possible.
It's safe to say describing Africa in one word is no easy fete. I love how @pichastock's #1word4Africa campaign has generated positive conversations about the motherland and allowed us to take ownership of the narrative by telling our own stories.
