As I present this work entitled Oghundi Nayi, I am aware of the need to make the photographs mean something, not just to the audience but also myself. The series represents my attempt to understand 'the other' as I live, talk and work with the local inhabitants in the Kasese-district west of Uganda. Could the work really bridge the cultural and symbolic gaps that exist between us? While undertaking this project, the camera became an instrument to translate new impressions of an unfamiliar culture in something tangible, something 'real'. A question mark now hangs over the work, did I truly get closer to the 'other' or do I remain forever distant?
