My name is Emmanuel Bich’ri Mwila Mwiche, and I’m a Zambian photographer based in Kalulushi on the Copperbelt Province. I began my professional photography journey in 2016. My work has made me travel to different places around Zambia and has taken me on so many life changing projects. On the road for all these projects and in between assignments there’s always something that catches my eye. These are some of the shots I’m sharing here.
In 2017 I was named best Zambian photographer of the year at the Zee Creative Awards. After this I started working on documentary photography that highlights the stories of people living with mental health challenges in Zambia.
Photography and being a creative helps me to share my inner feeling and emotions that I can’t write about. I tell stories and freeze moments by taking photos.
