Hi, my name is Cynthia Butare.
I am a documentary photographer and videographer.
I use this space to share a representation of Rwanda that fights bias and broadens perceptions.
At its heart, my approach uses cultural heritage as a fuel for creative expression. While it is plural – involving writing, photography, videography, documentaries – it focuses on culture, identity, and self-expression with poetry and sensibility to soothe the soul and enliven the spirits.
Being convinced that creativity is intimately linked to the very essence of who we are, I moved to Rwanda six years ago to stimulate new ideas and reorient my thoughts, hoping to produce striking visuals with more depth and nuance.
