This photoshoot was made during the celebration of Imbalu, the male circumcision ceremony in the Mbale region of Uganda. This practice is common among the Bugisu tribe and it initiates the transition from malehood to manhood. This type of ceremony is not commonly witnessed by westerners and for that reason, wespent a week visiting locals and familiarizing ourselves with each other. The friendly Ugandan people welcomed us with their arms wide open. I did this photoshoot with my friend and amazing wedding photographer Denise Motz while her visit in Uganda.
