Graham Lynch – Searching for solace in solitude
“Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Themba Lewis – Streets
For over a decade, Themba Lewis has carried a small Olympus 35mm camera or something similar around the globe, capturing candid street-level photography of the mundane and the monumental. Over the years his work has recorded globally-charged events such as the Egyptian revolution and the London riots to quieter moments in Parisian laundromats, Zanzibari spice ports, and faded Pacific logging towns.
The majority of the photographs in this series were not intended for exhibition, but rather as documents of private and anonymous lives, and have been shot with fixed focus tools on black and white film, leaving the camera a wide range of influence over the final results.
Brian Quillinan – After Lives
An upclose look at the 3am nightlife on the streets of Cork City. I love how the craziness becomes the norm and Hillbilly’s is the national dish. Is it the perfect remedy for regimented living?
Photos mainly portraits of friends of mine taken with fixed lens and using natural light solely.
