Eyes on Main Street Inc

Sarah Marie Waiswa – I am a Ugandan documentary photographer and visual artist inspired by the richness of African stories, people, culture, and myths. I try to capture in my work the aesthetics of the continent that are attuned to color, texture, and patterns. I am interested in the formation of the African identity in relation to the past, how it manifests itself in the present, and what it will look like in the future, while simultaneously investigating the existence of a collective identity. 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. (Photo shot in Zanzibar, Tanzania 2017. Photo sponsors: Kate Eagles and Libby Eagles.)
