King’s Ransom London took over 115 Curtain Road last Friday to exhibit 6 excellent photographers at our 1 day pop-up shop. This was an extension of our Eye of a King photography series which has previously only been seen online. The series was borne out of a need to provide a space for young creatives to collaborate, generate art and expand their networks in a scene that can be cripplingly exclusive.
Eye of a King is a complete collaboration between King’s Ransom London and the photographers; breaking the common tradition of brands dictating the look and feel of campaigns, stifling the creative process. After agreeing on a concept, each shoot is directed, produced and styled by the King’s Ransom Girls’, working to bring each photographer’s vision to life.
The King’s Ransom Girls’ keen eye for talent sees artistic brilliance that should be nurtured rather than overlooked simply due to youth.
For some of our photographers, stylists and models, Eye of a King is the first time they’ve been given free rein in their fields. This has allowed them to flourish; building their portfolio, expanding their client base and even leading to some of our models getting signed with leading agencies.
After a day of selling our collection, we opened our doors for the Eye of a King private view with music and good vibes to accompany the photographer’s work. We had a great turn out and were so glad to expose these amazing artists, many of whom, have never had their worked displayed before.
Big love to all that came down to support us, it’s always much appreciated!
Here’s what you missed on the night…
