Lianne began her freelance career in 2009, when she was laid off from a newspaper job held for three years -- the result of challenging economic times. However, the layoff was a blessing in disguise, enabling her to pursue stories and personal projects that she deeply care about. Lianne's photography seeks an emotional narrative of experiences, often driven by the very social issue of a story, as well as exploring and confronting the world around her.
Since then, Lianne photographs for publications such as AARP, CNN, Guardian of London, Monocle Magazine, Mother Jones Magazine, National Public Radio, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Bay Citizen and US News & World Report.
Her work has also been published in Afisha (Russian travel magazine), Christian Science Monitor, Financial Times, Inc Magazine, Open Society Foundations, San Francisco Chronicle, The Sunday Times, The Magazine Group, Town & Country, Washington Post, and featured in AP-AI Latin America 2012, Foto8, PDN's Photo of the Day blog, NPR's The Picture Show, Slideluck Potshow - DC, SF, Atlanta, Austin, Dallas - and Youth Radio.
Commercial clients include: Amuse Bouche Wines, Bentley Magazine, Ceja Vineyards, Chobani Greek Yogurt, Hermes Paris, Kirsten Muenster Jewelry, Speedo, and Tufts University.
Lianne currently reside in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the City meets the Ocean. When she is not photographing, she's out there surfing.
