THE WANTEETE PHOTO COLLECTIVE
The Wanteete Photo Collective (WPC) is comprised of seventeen individuals from Wanteete. To found the collective, Project Director Louise Contino turned to the local knowledge and expertise of the BESO team, a major partner for this project. BESO is a community based non-profit serving the Wanteete community and greater Kayunga District, founded by Aaron Bukenya. Louise asked Aaron and his team to select candidates for the collective that would fill a diverse spectrum of identities and roles in the community. We sought a community leader, elder, teacher, female student, male student, organizer, mother, father, and business person. What we got in return was an amazing group comprising some of Wanteete's finest community members, ranging in age from 13 - 62 years. Below are the faces that make up the WPC.
