Black Dots - Work in Progress

‘Black Dots’ is an exploration of mountain bothies and bothy culture across the United Kingdom. Situated amidst some of the most remote and challenging landscapes, these unassuming huts are a refuge from the vast terrain that surrounds them. From day trippers to seasoned mountaineers, these stone-tents offer basic protection and shelter from the elements and have become an iconic feature of the British landscape over the past 50 years. 

Bothies represent a substantial network of people from all walks of life, connected by a mutual desire to find joy and fulfilment from the great outdoors. By photographing a selection of these structures, the landscapes in which they are placed and the individuals that I encounter there, my hope is that the work will generate a wider dialogue celebrating the relationship between man and the wilderness in the 21st century.
