Children who are growing up in Uganda, one of the poorest and fastest growing countries of Afrika, have an uncertain future for themselves. While sitting in a safe and dry shelter, these boys curiously look up to the light, wondering when the rain will stop.

"As a true sentimentalist, I express my feelings trough my images. I get inspired by authentic cultures and the pure beauty of our Earth. As an artist, I'm always searching for that one, perfect moment where everything comes together. Those moments tell my story. Trough the years I developed my own, strong style. Powerfull images which show passion, with space for your own story as a viewer."
