The Musa Katuramu Collection

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 Ruharo (Mbarara) and started his own carpentry school in Rubindi 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.
