Meet Sarah Waiswa, a Ugandan born photographer capturing contemporary faces of Africa

By Erin White*

We’re loving the work of Ugandan-born, Nairobi-based photographer Sarah Waiswa. Waiswa is a documentary and portrait photo blogger whose work centers around identity, specifically the ‘New African Identity’, which is the contemporary faces and places of the continent. Waiswa, who describes herself as The Afrohemian Nomad, use photography to highlight the local, and refreshing, images of beauty seen all across Africa. Below are some of our favorite of Waiswa’s portraits, but be sure to follow her on Instagram for the gorgeous landscapes and street shots.
