About the Book
Another 'Kaddu Wasswa Archive'. The book published in 2010 was my attempt to tell Kaddu Wasswa's story, and that of our working on the project in selected images and documents made by him, his grandson Arthur Conrad Kisitu and me. Kaddu himself asked me to make another version, where the emphasis slightly shifts from the relevance of his mode of documenting in the Ugandan context in general, to his personal story. He completely compiled it himself, and I produced it as a Printing On Demand volume. See http://www.post-editions.com/?page=kaddu for the original volume.
My work always starts with a story or found documents and photographs, something ‘real’. I gues this makes it documentary photography, but not necesarrily in the traditional sence of the word. I show the everyday of ordinary people, and the way photographs give us an opportunity to relate to, deal with, and escape it. I try to question the photographic way of representing a reality in different ways. For example in panoramic photographs or the use of vernacular images in combination with photographs and/or with text. See my website for more information and an up to date c.v.
