Visual storyteller and adventurer, Louisa Seton has created a name for herself as a documentary travel photographer who specialises in capturing the stunning visual identity of African tribal culture and ceremony.
MOJA AFRICA, the Swahili term for One Africa, is a powerful series of portraits, including timeless favourites and recent photographs from the Omo Valley, Ethiopia, that celebrate and explore community, female empowerment and adornment as self-expression.
The collection highlights Louisa’s love for Africa and reveals the remarkable beauty of people truly engaged with their natural environment.
Seton who grew up in Nairobi, has always been fascinated by the culture that surrounded her as a child, “Growing up in Africa I lived and interacted with a variety of tribal communities which helped inspire a deep respect for the people and the ways in which they live their lives.”
5% of profits from all sales are donated to Operation Fistula that treats obstetric fistula with cost-effective and restorative surgery, a cause that Louisa is passionate about.
Ambitious and adventurous, Louisa has won the “Travel Photo of the Year”, category “Face to Face” the largest photographic competition of its kind at the time. She was also a 2017 finalist in the Head On Portrait Prize, Australia’s most critically acclaimed photographic portrait competition.
