BIO

Kalina is a Polish-born, London-based filmmaker, photographer and creative director.

Kalina has been working in the creative industry for the past thirteen years, initially focusing on fashion styling and creative direction. Assisting stylists and creative directors such as Edward Enninful, Karen Langley, Lucia Liu to name a few, she developed a strong work ethic, an eye for detail and got to work in the UK, US, Europe, and Asia on projects with artists such as Frank Ocean amongst others. As her career progressed, she became more drawn to storytelling and the magic of working closely with her subjects in a multidisciplinary way, which eventually led to her shift towards lens-based media. Since then, Kalina has shot short films, music videos, press shots, campaigns, lookbooks and branded content.

Her work explores the spectrum of human emotion within micro and macro communities, highlighting people, places and scenarios that might otherwise go unnoticed. Kalina’s multidisciplinary background allows her to apply her skillset onto various project types and media formats, from moving image, photographic work to printed photobooks and, more recently, installation art.

Kalina’s visual style can be defined by a bold and meaningful use of colour and a blend of analogue and digital processes. She often plays with the confines of the frame, be it the literal confines of the camera or the limits of the set, grounding her characters firmly in reality.

Within the past four years, Kalina has focused more on her moving image work, with her music videos gaining attention and festival acclaim. Kalina’s debut short film Tender Loving Care, which depicts the experience of loneliness in a big city, was shown at the Cannes Film Festival as a part of the Straight8 showcase. The extended version of the film is being screened in the film festival circuit, including an international premiere at the International Film Festival Molodist in Kyiv, a special screening and exhibition at the EXPOSED Torino Foto Festival and inclusion in the Short Film Corner Market Catalogue at the Cannes Film Festival amongst others. 

She has also recently published a photobook LF5TL GLZ (Lifestyle Goals), an investigation into the relationship between cars, socio-economic status, class and community.

Kalina is available globally for campaigns, commercial projects, editorial assignments, short films, and workshops.
