The Kaddu Wasswa Archive


With Africa as the world’s latest front line in political, cultural and ecological issues, this extraordinary exhibition catalogue presents an unforgettable story of a quiet soul in a ruaral village in Uganda who had a huge impact on his nation. Dutch photographer Andrea Stultiens met Ugandan teacher Kaddu Wasswa in 2008 through his grandson, photographerArthur C. Kisitu, and discovered the meticulous archive in which Wasswa documented his years of community activism. Stultiens and Kisitu added their own photographs, and the result is an absorbing visual biography that stretches from Uganda’s colonial days through its first 50 years of independence.
