Cynthia MaiWa Sitei
MaiWa is a Kenya-British documentary photographer currently based in Cardiff, Wales. After graduating with a BA in psychology with criminology in 2017, she pursued an MA in documentary photography at the University of South Wales, so as to engage with the medium of photography in sharing work that resulted from longitudinal research methods. Stories played a big impact in her upbringing; they were a form of entertainment during and after dinner and a reliable method of communication in bringing people together and creating spaces where everyone was equal regardless of their age, wealth and health. Her work integrates photography and text, and explore themes of stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination.
