The Side and Amber films is a film & photography collective incorporating Amber Films, Side Gallery and Side Cinema...with work rooted in social documentary.
It is now 40 years old and has produced and supported a great number of exhibitions and photographers over the years. It has a really rich collection of original prints including work by Weegee, Graciela Iturbide, Martin Chambi and British photographers documenting the North, including, John Davis, Chris Steel Perkins, Julian Germain, Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen, Dean Chapman and many more. Well worth checking out.
I exhibited Between the Lines at the Side in 2002 and will present Fault lines: Turkey East West over the 2 galleries in 2010.
