Creative Head & Founding Member, Sugar Town Girls
Hailing from Berlin, Julia Schönstädt is an award winning photographer and director, who earned her Masters at Goldsmiths (University of London). With several scholarships under her belt, she is now based in London, working between Germany and the UK. In her highly stylised work as a portrait photographer and music video director she always seeks out to explore the dynamic between composition and beauty in the worlds she creates.
Her work in feminist adult cinema is an expedition into this new genre, fusioning her background of music video with erotic film. The lack of authentic representation of lesbian love in adult film urged her to co-found Sugar Town, a London based production company that focuses on lesbian films. Sugar Town also hosts events where the visual language of porn is explored and introduced in new ways.
