Doyle Wham aims to promote innovative, young voices working in photography across Africa, connecting them with global audiences through both temporary exhibitions and a permanent collection.
African photography in the West propagates a narrow vision of the continent, often through the lens of ethnography, safari shots or images intended to invoke international sympathy. Doyle Wham is a response to this and a starting point for a new type of representation.
We firmly believe that art is for everyone. Our operating model removes traditional logistical and financial barriers to entry for both artists and art collectors. Our exhibitions are designed for and distributed via the Doyle Wham online platform, and we offer both unlimited and exclusive limited edition prints.
10% of the proceeds from every sale are donated to our charity partners: Right for Education and Mobile Art School Kenya.
