Aleksandra Kingo   is a London based photographer and director known for her playful, quirky style realised with use of bold colours and wit. She walks the razor's edge between discomfort and sexiness, toying with viewer's senses of disgust and attraction whilst creating surreal worlds where lipstick stains are a blessing and faux pas comes as standard.

Equal Lens    Equal Lens is an initiative that seeks to redress the gender imbalance in commercial photography. It’s not just a matter of fairness, at a time when women shoppers make 85% of consumer purchases, excluding talented female photographers just doesn’t make any sense.  Inspired by Free The Bid, we are calling for agencies to include women and men in every photographers list. We are encouraging clients and agencies to request and produce inclusive lists. And to make these lists easier, we are championing the work of women photographers on our website and beyond.  Together, we can give women photographers an equal shot.
