PEOPLE AND LANDSCAPES OF RWANDA

LAND OF A THOUSAND HILLS

RWANDA

This set of photographs provides a first look at the destination. They are from a number of work trips, where I have taken time out to go exploring with my camera, and they include a range of landscapes, candid and posed portraits.

KIGALI

While rapidly expanding, the city has a relativity low-rise profile outside a small downtown and retains ornamental and cultivated green space.  The city is also centrally located for venturing to other places of interest in the country.

TRADITIONAL DANCERS

By chance, I followed the noise of some loud drumming coming from downstairs at the place I was staying and came across this fantastic performance of Rwandan dancers and musicians. Thankfully, I had picked up my camera on the way.

The low light setting for the candid shots of dancers required boosting the ISO settings of the camera from 400 to 800 and up to 1600, which risked a lot of noise in the images. However, the performance of modern censors has kept the problem to a minimum.
