Louisa was raised in Nairobi, Kenya, surrounded by a rich tapestry of cultural diversity that has informed her creative expression. Her black and white images reflect an intimacy in her subjects that leaves one with a deep sense of nostalgia of times gone by.
5% of profits from all sales are donated to Operation Fistula that treats obstetric fistula with cost effective and restorative surgery, a cause that Louisa is incredibly passionate about.
Over the past decade, Louisa has been involved in several solo and joint exhibitions in London and Sydney. Her exhibition Out of Africa was a resounding success, with Patron of the Arts, James Erskine (of Liverpool Street Gallery in Sydney) buying up the entire collection before opening.
Her beautiful photography has also been published internationally gracing the front covers and pages of popular magazines, newspapers and coffee table books. Africa Geographic Year Book, Africa Geographic mag, CNN, Capture Magazine, The Daily Mail, UK Telegraph and Pro Photo magazine to name a few.
Louisa presently lives and works as a freelance photographer based out of Sydney.
