Darkness and light with Ilford Delta 3200 by Aivaras Sidle

Aivaras Sidle Posrtrait

I’m a 36-year-old enthusiast photographer from Lithuania. I’ve had camera’s as far back as I remember – both film and digital p&s, which I used to document life around me.

My attitude towards photography changed in 2012 after I found an unused film SLR in my office. Then I started to look at my surroundings differently and I became totally hooked on shooting film. Continue reading “Darkness and light with Ilford Delta 3200 by Aivaras Sidle”

McLennan worked as Audio-Visual/Computer Technician in schools until 2014. Pulling from layers of experience and current crises of the privileged, McLennan’s art is a channelling of evidence viewed through compulsion – expressed via photography, motion pictures, installation, and performance.
