Carpathia - January 2019 Diary

January 2019 marked 12 months since I began making photographs for my series, ‘Carpathia’ documenting the FCC rangers as they conduct their wildlife monitoring programme in the Southern Carpathian Mountains, Romania. Photographs from this project can now be viewed on my website, here. Below are some shots from the iPhone camera roll, taken on the winter trip.

Nicholas White explains the relationship between his camera and his surroundings

"Of course, when you’re visiting somewhere that contrasts greatly from your usual surroundings, you’re on a sort of photographic overdrive where everything becomes fascinating. You have to allow that to pass, in my opinion, before you begin to make good images. It’s certainly a constructive exercise to shoot away from home, as it presents a different set of challenges; principally, the unknown."

I recently spoke with The British Journal of Photography about the differences between shooting familiar and unfamiliar places. You can check out the full interview, here.


Romania Project Diary - The Ebb and Flow of the Creative Process

For the duration of my ongoing work in Romania, I will be writing a series of articles for On Landscape detailing the creative process. The articles will feature behind the scenes images taken on my D-SLR/iPhone/whatever I happen to have on me at the time as well as pictures taken by the rangers. The first piece is available to view here

Please note, these articles are only available to those with a subscription to On Landscape magazine. 

These daily excursions saw us leaving the villages behind us and exploring landscapes deep within the project area. The rangers would try their luck with the 4x4 as far as possible, but for the most part, it was on foot. Trudging through tangled forests in waist deep powder, I struggled to find compositions in a confused, seemingly never-ending maze of black and white.

Doers of London - The Modern Sportsperson

For the past seven months, I've been working on a fascinating portrait commission across London. Commissioned by Do Sport, the series presents a showcase of the modern sportsperson throughout the capital. The photographs and accompanying interviews will be produced as a photobook towards the end of 2018. Many thanks to the team at DO, producer Tom Whittle and designer Anna Clark from Blunt Crayon.

I'll be sharing a selection of the portraits here on the blog over the next few weeks.
