Hopes and hardships of globalization / Drömmar och dilemman i globaliseringen

Most of these are painted illustrations for my master’s thesis in cultural anthropology (see short version), which is about motorcycle-taxi drivers in Kisoro district, Uganda, and how they experience various transformations taking place in their society. I stayed in and around the area for six weeks in 2017, doing interviews and participant observations. I also made a video with these paintings + some real footage/sounds from the area.
