Imbalu: The Circumcision Festival


Show More

Imbalu is a nationwide circumcision festival in Uganda. It lasts for several months, every two years. The festival to start Imbalu was in Mbale, where I was living. Boys in Uganda are often not circumcised until 12-17 years of age. They are not allowed to scream, cry or show pain during the circumcision. This is how they become a man in their culture.

I had the opportunity to shoot two short films in Namatala. I shot the films to sponsor the "Child of Hope Outreach" school in the slums. I've also some included photos from other villages like Buyobo & Bonabuyoka.

Family Photo Projects

Because of poverty in most villages, most people would never have access to high quality photos. This project is a huge passion of mine; through donations and funding from HELP Intl, we were able to distribute family photos for a few cents per print.

Kyemula, a village in the Manafwa district of Eastern Uganda, is a small, but thriving village. We have helped implement several agricultural, scholastic, and financial programs in this village.
