Lizane Louw

Photographer + Multimedia Journalist + Designer

My name is Lizane, I am a multimedia journalist, photographer, and designer dedicated to exploring and documenting the intersection of travel, culture, and the environment. My work addresses critical issues such as climate change, global warming, and sustainable living through storytelling, visual documentation, and design.

Throughout my extensive travels in Asia, Europe, and Africa, I have documented the significant impacts of human activities on our planet. My long-term projects focus on environmental preservation, the human condition, and the urgent need for climate action. Through these narratives, I aim to inspire awareness, foster dialogue, and encourage sustainable practices.

I am currently working on an art photography series and a sustainable design project that highlights heritage textile crafts in India. This project celebrates traditional craftsmanship while advocating for sustainable and ethical design practices.

I invite you to join me in sharing these essential stories. Together, we can elevate awareness, drive impactful change, and underscore the critical importance of sustainability for our future.

ABOUT ME AND MY WORK

MY WORK IN MULTIMEDIA AND DESIGN

I am an independent multimedia and creative professional, working as a photographer, multimedia journalist, multimedia editor and digital products designer in multimedia.

I was born in Cape Town, South Africa, but I have lived and worked internationally as a photographer and journalist for over 17 years.

As a designer, I work in digital design at the intersection of journalism, communication, design and technology. I provide product design that creates visual and immersive experiences.

As a multimedia journalist and photographer, I cover travel, culture, environment, and sustainability stories when on the road in Europe and Africa. In addition, I write about photography, photographic work, art, and exhibitions when I am based in Berlin.

As a travel, culture and nature photographer, my work in photography focuses on the environment, sustainability, and the human experience. My long-term visual projects investigate how our daily activities impact the environment due to climate change, global warming, and natural habitat loss. I also document events that visually portray the changes in our oceans, the atmosphere and soil.

From Tealeaf to Teacup.

MY BACKGROUND

My career started as a photojournalist for Media24 publications in South Africa in 2007. I have since spent a decade in Asia, travelling, exploring and continuing my studies in visual journalism. I studied multimedia journalism at ACFJ, Ateneo de Manila University and graduated with a master's degree in journalism in 2019.

My work in journalism shifted from hard news and investigative journalism to topics on the environment and sustainability after a story I did on marine debris and pollution in Taiwan.

I moved to Germany, got married, and now my written work as a travel journalist focuses on culture, travel, eco-tourism, sustainability, culinary arts and exotic retreats. My photography focus on unique outdoor adventures to remote and unusual destinations.
