Louisa Seton


Louisa’s work explores the line between fine art, portrait, and documentary photography. Best known for her portraits of women in Africa she powerfully enhances indigenous culture with humanitarian visual storytelling.

Louisa was raised in Nairobi, Kenya surrounded by a rich tapestry of cultural diversity that has informed her creative expression. Her collection of portraits and wildlife highlights Louisa’s love for Africa and reveals the remarkable beauty of people truly engaged with their natural environment. Her black and white images reflect an intimacy in her subjects that leaves one with a deep sense of nostalgia for times gone by.

Louisa studied Fine Art at Rhodes University, South Africa, majoring in Photography. She has gone on to successfully exhibit and publish her work globally.
