About Lianne 

Lianne AshtonLianne creates people-centric photography for agricultural organisations, businesses and NGO’s. Though she is based in the farming district of Ixopo in KwaZulu-Natal, (South Africa) her work has taken her to Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia and Senegal.

Lianne particularly enjoys working with smallholder farmers around Africa and working with organisations that up-skill or assist people by providing them with self-empowering solutions to improve their future.

Lianne’s work combines both directive and documentary styles. She is inspired by ‘movement’ and capturing the action and atmosphere of a people-centric environment. She aims to create photography that gives the audience an ‘insight’ and a narrative that uplifts, sparks interest and communicates. Lianne has created content for large agricultural corporates as well as non profit organisations.

Africa far and wide Blog

In 2012, Lianne started the Africa far and wide blog when living in central Mozambique. This is essentially where Lianne’s photographic and writing journey began. She was inspired by ‘people’s way of life’ and would document ‘everyday life’ in Mozambique and later, Malawi. Her work includes social documentaries, travel photography and personal essays. Africa far and wide posts have been featured on WordPress DISCOVER and WordPress’s FRESHLY PRESSED.
