Abstract

The 1980 World Press Photo edition xdirected the gazes of its audience mainly towards the ‘far east’. ‘The World’ was seen through the lenses of European, Russian and American photographers. This installation asks its audience to consider whether Elly Rwakoma’s photographs could have stood a chance, if only he would have had access to the competition.

In 1979 Presidential Photographer Rwakoma was present at a political rally that turned into chaos. He says that there was an attempted assassination on Godfrey Binaisa, who was then the president of Uganda. There were many casualties. The president himself was not injured. The newspaper reports related to the event contradict each other.

This investigation is a derived observation related to Ebifananyi 3, All the Tricks – Elly Rwakoma.
