Date and Time

Monday, February 13, 2012
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM


  • Red Wall Gallery, Lake Ontario Hall


Photographer and Grand Valley State University Facilities Services staff member, Ken Vanderwal, has travelled to Uganda as a missionary thirteen times since 2004. He has recorded a detailed visual exposé of the daily life of southern Ugandans in the countryside, villages, and cities from Mukono to the capital city of Kampala. 


VanderWal has captured images of people with hope, rather than exploiting the harsh and difficult conditions in which they live. He intentionally records subjects and scenes that depict people with whom viewers can relate…those with dreams for a better life.
