"Darkside of the Lens" offers a surreal, ethereal, passionate and personal glimpse into the life and motivations of an ocean based photographer - working on a magical, yet isolated, frozen and dangerous stretch of the Irish coastline.

Indeed, the film itself becomes a visual poem of sorts, set in a mind-blowing environment of epic heavy waves, strange sea life and monolithic stunning cliff lines.

Land, sea and wavescapes illustrate the grandeur of this environment, and huge explosions of water bring it’s realities home, as the photographer swims through the epicenter of it all.
