Africa Reign: Lorraine Binie Kinnear



Lorraine Kinnear is a 22 year old University of Botswana student who has been blogging and doing photography for a little under 5 years. She cannot wait to finish her studies so she can start setting up exhibitions and travelling so she can have a more diversified portfolio. Exploring aesthetics in human beauty, places and culture is what drives her desire to one day explore every single corner of our beautiful continent through photography.

“Africa loosely explained I understand it to be an aspiration for African excellence, not just in art but throughout all industries, a will for a greater change for Africa”, she says. Lorraine feels that the current youth is a most refreshing ramble of change. She says there is a great many things we are doing, it is like we now want things in our hands. “We are more responsible for selling our culture to the rest of the world, NOW MAY OUR VOICES BE HEARD! She passionately echoes.

On her ambitions:

She say she does not think that what she has is much of an ambition, ambitions are things of the future. “I live the African Dream right now”, she says. Lorraine is constantly exploring culture in different parts of Africa and documenting all of it. One day at a time her and other creatives are mapping a world of Brilliant Brown Skins and Nappy Hairs.

Africa Reign: Modisa Brilliant Kodie


Modisa is a 20 year old Economics and Accounting student at the University of Botswana who is also a fashion blogger and photographer. He is also active in issues that affect Africa because he believes that it is his responsibility to be concerned about African people.

Modisa loves working with Local creatives in Botswana with the sole aim of bringing them together . He has had different fashion projects where he collaborated with local fashion artists . Expanding his brand to other African countries has always the plan. I believe that is coming along very well as Modisa has been collaborating with big fashion brands in South Africa doing what he does best and enjoys the most: taking pictures.


“Also I just want to keep taking pictures really… Because most of all
I enjoy it”.

Like all photographers he has little to say but his photos do the talking for him.

“One day I want to wake up, go to the book store, buy Vogue
Italia/US/UK and see my work in there. Africa can do it”.
