“Moses Katuramu (born 1913 in Fort Portal - passed on 1986 in Mbarara) was a carpenter. He trained from Makerere, then still a technical college and was a teacher and deputy headmaster at Mbarara Highschool (1940-1949). After that he had his own carpentry workshop in Ruhoro (Mbarara) and started his own carpentry school in Ruhiri in 1954.
Next to all this he owned a camera and used it a lot. Mostly to photograph the people around him, but sometimes he was also commissioned to make portraits or cover events. The collection is kept in a very good state by Musa’s son Jerry Bagonza who gave permission to share his father’s work with you. He already recognised some of the people on the photographs and gave us some dates. But, as the whole of History In Progress Uganda this is a work in progress.” - (view the whole collection via History In Progress Uganda)
