Africans telling Africa's story
Welcome to african.pictures, Africa Media Online’s image licensing agency. We are an African picture library based in South Africa working with photographers, media organisations and heritage institutions from Africa to tell Africa's story.
We specialise in making African image collections available for licensing to customers worldwide. The majority of the images we represent:
1. Focus on Africa and the African diaspora
2. Are captured or supplied by African photographers, African media organisations and African heritage institutions including galleries, libraries, museums and archives (GLAMs)
3. Are edited for quality and authenticity
As part of the Africa Media Online group we are actively involved in empowering photographers from across the African continent to create accurate content that tells Africa’s story in a holistic way. We are also engaged with African media and heritage organisations and institutions to digitise valuable African collections to showcase African historic, cultural and natural heritage.
