How Eyerusalem Adugna Jirenga is changing the Narrative of Ethiopia one image at a time

Eliza Jordan, Whitewall, April 18, 2019

Eyerusalem Adugna Jirenga lives and works in Ethiopia as a photographer. For several years, her eyes have been focused on architecture, fashion, and history, and now she’s ready to start her own fashion label. As one of few female photographers in Ethiopia, Jirenga aims to change the narrative of her country through images and self-expression, revealing the dynamic cultural landscape of her country.

 

"I’d like the viewer to understand and learn from other beautiful cultures and for people to be aware of what Ethiopia looks like. Ethiopia has been misrepresented through media for decades, and my work is to change the narrative of my country."
