Welcome to african.pictures, Africa Media Online’s image licensing agency. As an African picture library based in South Africa, we work with African photographers and heritage institutions to create and present an African perspective from and about our great continent.
We specialise in making African image collections available for licensing to customers worldwide. All the images we represent:
- focus on African content
- are captured or supplied by African photographers (all of whom hold a passport of an African country) or African heritage organisations and institutions including museums and archives
- are edited for quality and trustworthiness
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 heritage institutions and organisations to digitise valuable African collections to showcase the best of African history, cultural and natural heritage.
