Mukono to Kampala: Life in Uganda by Ken VanderWal

Monday, January 7, 2013
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Red Wall Gallery, Lake Ontario Hall, Allendale Campus


Photographer and Grand Valley State University Facilities Services staff member, Ken VanderWal, has traveled to Uganda as a missionary thirteen times since 2004. He has recorded a detailed visual exposé of the daily life of southern Ugandans in the countryside, villages and cities from Mukono, to the capital city of Kampala.

Rather than exploiting the harsh and difficult conditions in which they live, VanderWal has captured images of people with hope. He intentionally records subjects and scenes that depict people with whom viewers can relate.

This exhibit is on display until Wednesday, March 13, 2013. For more information please call the GVSU Art Gallery at 616-331-2563.
