Making Oneself

Edward Lule

Self Portraits (by the unknown Ugandan studio photographers, Edward Lule and Papa Shabani), early seventies

In contrast to many fellow-countrymen of his generation, Edward Lule knows exactly when he was born. For, on that day a photograph was taken which he still has. Lule became a sculptor and predominantly made sculptures from wood. A combination of the self-portraits and wooden sculptures, which he made in the early seventies, demonstrates his feel for fashion and his qualities as an artist. The contemporary photographs were made by Papa Shabani, upon Stultien’s request.
