In his project ‘Black Dots’, landscape photographer Nicholas JR White explores bothying, a way of camping in the remote places by staying at the free-standing shelters.
A bothy is a basic shelter left unlocked and available to use free of charge for everyone. Particularly common in Scottish Highlands, they can also be found in the remote mountainous areas of Scotland, Northern England, Ireland and Wales. Nicholas JR White has traveled to Lake District, UK, to begin his adventure of “camping without a tent”. Capturing the stunning landscapes with his 5×4 camera, the photographer managed to convey the specifics of the activity. It includes the moments of isolation, serenity, but at times also socializing with unique people, all accompanied by the overall experience of facing the monumental nature.
