Lianne Milton is an independent photojournalist, social documentary photographer, and visual artist. Her practice-led research explores the complexities of the human condition, in particular, the maternal. It is concerned with interconnecting themes of history, identity, and transgenerational memory at the intersection of feminism, public health, and social justice. Lianne’s approach to her work is informed by her experience as a journalist, social documentary photographer, and mother.
From 2013-2019, Lianne was based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where her photographic coverage for The Washington Post, The Sunday Times, M Le Monde magazine, Businessweek, and many others, brought international attention to the Zika crisis, drought in Brazil’s northeast region, and violence in the favelas. Lianne is a recipient of the International Women’s Media Foundation fellowship, Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting grant, Sony Global Imaging Ambassador program, and Yves Rocher Foundation Environmental Photography Award. Published internationally, Lianne also photographs for many travel publications including inflight magazines, Conde Nast Traveller, and National Geographic Traveller as well as for major international NGOs, such as ActionAid, Open Society Foundations, Smile Train, UNICEF and UN Women.
