Black Dots: Breathtaking photography series offers pictorial account of the British Isles

I believe a good photographer will make you feel as though
you’ve visited a place, even if you’ve never been. Something
that Nicholas White – a photographer from the South West of
England – achieves with flying colours.

Graduating from Plymouth College of Art in 2013, his personal
work examines our relationship with our surrounding landscape,
and the ways in which we interact with our natural spaces.

White explains: “For the past three years, I have been
travelling the length and breadth of the British Isles shooting
a self-initiated personal project. Black Dots is an exploration
of mountain bothies and bothy culture across the United
Kingdom, and saw me carry my large format camera from the
evergreen forests of central Wales to the snowy munros of The
Cairngorm Mountains in Scotland.

“Travelling through some of our most remote, wild and lonely
landscapes, I documented these structures and the people who
temporarily inhabit them. In January of this year I returned
from the last trip of the project.”

The stunning work has recently been shortlisted for the World
Photography Organisation ZEISS Photo Awards, and a selection of
images will be exhibited at Somerset House, London, from 21st
April – 7th May. For more information visit
