Historical Context:
A photographer and Grand Valley State University staff member, Ken VanderWal, has travelled to Uganda as a missionary since August of 2004. He has kept a detailed visual record of the daily life of southeren Ugandans in the countryside, villages and cities from Mukono to the capital, Kampala. These photographs capture images of people with hope, rather than exploiting the harsh and difficult conditions in which they live. The photographer intentionally records subjects and scenes that depict a people with whom viewers can relate, and those dreams for a better life.
