African Stock Photo Tell an authentically African visual story
AfricanStockPhoto is a photography marketplace that connects buyers of stock imagery to the best photographers on the continent.
Stock photography of Africa is still focused on certain stereotypes: primarily nature and wildlife, tribesmen and women, and poverty. This is reflected in imagery seen in media, both on the continent and globally. The lack of access to quality imagery is also evident from the billboards all over African cities which feature models that do not reflect their target audience.
Africa has no shortage of compelling visual stories and excellent photographers to tell them, and AfricanStockPhoto exists to make their content directly available to advertisers, media companies, report publishers and other consumers of stock photography, in Africa and beyond.
