In 2012, Adriane began covering the news in South Sudan for Reuters. She has continued to document the civil war in South Sudan, fighting in Somalia, clashes in Burundi, and most recently the conflict in Darfur, Sudan. She has documented the Sudanese refugees living in South Sudan, the fighting in the Nuba Mountains of South Kordofan, and the border demarcation and fight over oil between Sudan and South Sudan. Adriane’s ongoing focus has been on the impact that conflict has on isolated civilian populations. She strives to cover all aspects of conflict, often exploring the isolation and desperation of people who have no other choice but to endure the reality of life within a war zone.

Adriane attended the Eddie Adams workshop in 2014, where she received an award from National Geographic. She has also been recognized as one of Magnum Photo’s top ‘30 under 30’ and received LensCulture’s Emerging Talent award her photographs of women soldiers in rebel-controlled Kachin, Myanmar. In 2015, Adriane was selected as one of Getty Images Emerging Photographers, and in 2016, she won a World Press Photo award for her work in Darfur.

Adriane was recently honored with the Anja Niedringhaus Courage in Photojournalism Award. Adriane’s photographs have been published by: Al Jazeera, The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic, the New Yorker, the New York Times, and TIME.
