Founded in 2013, Lensational equips marginalised women in the developing world with digital cameras and photography training as a means to emotional and economic empowerment. Lensational has provided equipment and photography training to 600 women in 15 developing countries, with a particular focus on Asia. The resulting photographs have been shared widely, with all profits from sales shared evenly between Lensational and the photographer. Funding from The Fore will enable Lensational to scale to meet the commercial demand for its images through increased staff and improved technological infrastructure for image storage.
