Doola

The exihibiton Doola consists of black and white photographs from Uganda showing women selling magazines in the capital Kampala. At the first glance, we can interpret the pictures as we are used to perceiving images from Africa: as an illustration of devastating poverty and helplessness.

In fact, these women are self-sufficient newspaper vendors. With the help of micro loans – an effective way to stimulate economic activity among the poorest – they have been able to start this business. A new image is emerging: a picture of pride, self-esteem and hope.
