Bastiaan Woudt (The Netherlands, b. 1987) has a long-standing fascination with the African continent. So, a project to photograph the Ugandan countryside was a dream come true. He visited Mukono in central Uganda in October 2017. There, in addition to a commission from the Marie-Stella-Maris Foundation, which supports local drinking water projects in the area, Bastiaan was given the opportunity to create his own work. During this short trip he succeeded in connecting with the people of Mukono. The result is a wide-ranging collection of remarkable monochrome portraits, alongside surreal impressions of the local landscape. This body of work confirms Woudt's typical aesthetic signature - sober but dynamic - which, despite originating at an early stage in his career, has already brought him extensive recognition at home and abroad.
