Photography is one of the means I use to see a world beyond what the natural eye can see.
Watsemba Miriam is my name, I am based in Uganda, Africa. Over the past five years my love for stories has led me to where I am today: as a freelance documentary photographer.
My dream and reason for living is simply to tell stories of people in life.
I founded Mpeak Communication; a Company that seeks to build a creative space for both the emerging and seasoned photography story tellers in Africa -to advance the cause of storytelling through photography.
I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Communication from Makerere University in 2017.
I have been fortunate enough to document ‘The Fabricator.’ and the ‘Unseen,’ projects of which the latter was part of the Atwork workshop exhibition with the Moleskine Foundation at the Makerere Art Gallery.
I have had the opportunity to train with Canon Central and North Africa in storytelling and documentary photography throughout 2017 and 2018. This training saw me become a beneficiary of the seven month Young Photographer Award mentorship program under the Uganda Press Photo Award where I worked to document and produce the project, ‘Dreams and Realities’ that formed part the UPPA 2018 Winning Photos exhibition at the Square Place in Kampala.
