Under the lens of Sarah Waiswa, faces are offered with gentleness, and individuals seem to dance in the sun of the African continent, bearers of history as much as of renewal. With her artistic and documentary work, photographer Sarah Waiswa seeks to translate the social issues of contemporary Africa, as a passage towards potential solutions. Her series ‘Stranger in a Familiar Land’ and ‘Still a Stranger’ use color as an element of language and the body as a witness, an epidermis sensitive to its social environment, as a metaphor for the photographer with a fresh perspective. Thus, poetry meets sociology, harshness and hope merge in the frame, and the image expresses what words could not compose with such clarity.
