Behind the pseudonym of Lor Dethal lies Nemanja Torlak, a writer for Widewalls intrigued and moved by diversity in art and in the lives of those who create it. It is often the unexpected that come forth and surprise us, and art is a world that allows it and makes it possible. David beats the Goliath daily, and writing about it is a pleasure.

Born in Hong Kong in 1925, Lewis Morley was a known photographer who emigrated to the UK between 1941 and 1945. Famous for his photos of celebrities like Christine Keeler and Joe Orton, he also did theater photos for over 100 West End productions.
