Eyerusalem Adugna Jirenga The City of Saints Documentary Photography


Eyerusalem Adugna Jirenga (b.1993) is an exciting emerging artist and fashion designer based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.




Informed by her experience in design, she now uses photography to document and display living history. She specialises in evocatively bright and discerning portraits, enlivening them with distinctive and striking colour detail.


Her use of rich textures and colours plays against the crisp focus of her photographs, enhancing their warm, visually stimulating effect.


Eyerusalem has received considerable acclaim for her work both within Ethiopia and internationally.she has studied in Ethiopia and in the USA.



Her photographs have been featured on the Everyday Horn of Africa, and will feature in Mfon: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora.


Through dress, and visual art the artist captures how cultural shifts occur and how the enduring vitality of the continent’s traditional rituals of body adornment, masking, costuming, and spirit invocation can be reinterpreted.


Her compositions create beautiful vibrant visual documentations of Ethiopia.
