Filmed in Ireland, on some of the world’s most violent coastlines, Dark Side of the Lens profiles a surf photographer, an artist who takes to the waves looking for ‘little glimpses of magic” to record for posterity. The job may sound glamourous, but it’s a dangerous one. To be a surf photographer, you have to fend off drownings and near drownings, amidst cliff-battering waves, in frigid waters where cold constantly creeps into your core. The film uses these risky aspects of surf photography as a metaphor for the trade offs that a life of creativity requires. “My Ma always encouraged us to open our eyes and hearts to the world,” the photographer says, “and so I’m always trying to push the scope of my experience outward.”
