consacre en grande partie à la photographie et poursuit à travers des séries
éclectiques une réflexion sur l’altérité et le regard. Osvalde Lewat est diplômée

Osvalde Lewat was born in Garoua, Cameroon. Passionate about the art of the
image from an early age, she began collecting Polaroids of the members of her family.
She also saw every movie she could, haunting the cinemas of Yaounde, the city where
she grew up. While making her first documentaries on social and political themes,
her love of photography held strong. Combining these two passions, even before
showing her photos, she took stills on set of people, places, and scenes.
At night, in her free moments, she roamed the streets and alleys of the cities that
welcomed her, capturing images of strangers who crossed her path, buildings that made
an impression on her, atmospheres that moved her. Since 2012, Osvald Lewat’s work as
an explorer of the image has been mostly devoted to photography. Through her eclectic

approach, she pursues an ongoing reflection on otherness and ways of seeing.
