Contributors

We are building a strong community of contributors. Since 2015 we have collaborated with photographers from Sub-Saharan Africa to create new visual storytelling and build our initial inventory. At launch we will be able to offer global companies and institutions access to this unique and authentic content. For every image sold the contributor receives 50% in royalties, the highest in the industry. As a mission-driven company the majority of Africa Reframed profits will be reinvested in workshops and contributor development.

Misson

Most of imagery we encounter from the African continent tends to either depict the beautiful scenery and wildlife or scenes of poverty, war and desperation. While these certainly are bona fide aspects and challenges, Africa is also a continent characterised by immense growth, varied opportunities and not in the least, change.

The mission of Africa Reframed is to capture and contribute to the spurring of this change by a visual reframing of the continent. A reframing that promotes gender equality and reflects African enterprise, innovation and everyday life. Africa Reframed exist to create and promote this new imagery in the belief that by changing the visuals, we can help change the conversation.

Foundation 

 
image-asset.jpg

The start-up Africa Reframed is incorporated as an independent company, but being a Commerce & Culture initiative it is build on a decade of experience in creating projects that change perceptions and accelerates social change. Since 2010 we have created sustainable programs that have connected local photographers from Sub-Saharan Africa to the Global market. Of particular relevance for Africa Reframed are our project African Photography Network and the know-how gained from our work with educational programs and workshops.

When the United Nations In 2015 was launching the SDGs with Project Everyone, they did so with a campaign to share the global goals with 7 billion people in 7 days. This happened via global broadcasts, outdoor advertising campaigns, cinema ads, mobile partnerships and more. Images from our programme were among the officially chosen for the campaign and were singled out by the campaign team in press releases as "good education and economic growth in action".
