2022-05-29 | Fellow Uche Okpa-Iroh received Callanan Excellence in Teaching Award

safda adf afs We congratulate Thami Mnyele Foundation fellow Uche Okpa-Iroh for receiving Callanan Excellence in Teaching Award!

Uche Okpa-Iroha is multidisciplinary, his preference for photography and photojournalism as his preferred mediums is evident in his body of work. His works reflect the diversity and uniqueness of African communities. His contributions to the development of African photography have been inspired by his belief that representation and identity are some of the core issues hampering the development of African photography, based on the influence of stereotypes passed on from periods of colonized ruling. This informs his approach to his work, where he explores both intrinsic and extrinsic sources of inspiration to create various artistic expressions.


Thami Mnyele Foundation promotes the exchange of art and culture between Africa and the Netherlands.
