Cynthia MaiWa Sitei.
MaiWa is originally from Kenya and moved to England in 2010 and then to Wales in 2017, where she pursued a Masters in Documentary Photography at the University of South Wales, graduating in 2019. Her first project “Wundanyi” was about stigma and stereotypes around rape, exploring the need and importance for rape to become a household conversation. Stories played a big impact in her upbringing; they were a form of entertainment during and mostly after dinner and a reliable method of communication in bringing people together and creating spaces where everyone was one, regardless of the difference in age, wealth and health.
Cynthia and Farah collaborated together on a series of images exploring the incredible journey of identity and understanding. A Work in Progress.
