Ssekidde Julius

Ssekidde Julius is a documentary photographer.

I was born in 1993 and raised in one of Kampala’s artistic suburbs called Nsambya. I was drawn to photography seven years ago and since then I have found love in this art using it as a means of expression and telling stories that matter.

Being African, I recognize Africa’s need for home-grown talent in the field of photography with real African visions and with desperate need working towards representing our continent the right way, away from the stereotypes.

Coming from Uganda my greatest challenge is helping to change people’s perspective towards my country. As a young Ugandan photographer my main goal is to tell authentic African stories and change the standard we have in the mainstream media so that we are viewed differently by each new generation.

I want my visual work to be a voyage of truth about the African continent and I also want to be able to contribute to history writing about the beautiful African continent. This is my goal as a documentary photographer.

I live and work in Kampala, Uganda.
