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.

I am an avid traveler with a background in copywriting, social media management, art exhibition and music festival curation. I am a huge bookworm who not only enjoys getting lost in books, but I also enjoy writing on topics such as travel, art and fashion. I am interested in working in any projects relating to copywriting for small businesses, fiction writing, curating exhibitions for visual artists in Africa. I am also keen to work with small businesses in developing their social media strategies. Africa is my first love and I am currently having a great time exploring her.
