David Gilliver is a professional photographer and fine artist who specializes in long-exposure and macro photography.

In 2018, the Scottish artist has been working on his major project called Little People where he uses his miniature figurines and makes photographs in hope to bring awareness to the litter epidemic which has occupied our planet.

“Earlier this year, I spent several days collecting bags full of plastic and rubbish that had been discarded (or washed up) next to beaches and lochs on the west coast of Scotland, mostly ‘beauty’ spots,” the photographer explained. “I kept some of this plastic to make my work (recycling the rest) and returned to the banks of Loch Lomond a couple of months ago to photograph my latest series – Life in Plastic.”
