Daniel White fuses photography and digital techniques to explore the lives of our forests
Daniel White is a Scottish photographer who works on lost art installations and land art.
“I’m currently completing my BA HONS at City of Glasgow College after which I’ll take on commissions” says Daniel. “Earlier this year, I won an award from Fife Fotospace Gallery for my land art project Treasured Lands.”
“I have a passion for working on the landscape – I really deeply care about the environment I live in and the greater environment around me. I feel I really connect with nature and the environment and want to highlight to the viewer the experiences I’ve encountered during my projects. I try to raise awareness of a specific topic through my work and I hope the viewer takes something back from what I’m portraying to them.”
“Flow is an experimental photographic project using digital technology to communicate a forgotten issue in our forests. Many suffer from deforestation or natural destruction. We need our forests to help the world balance harmful emissions and keep our wildlife in a safe and natural habitat. In Flow, I help communicate these thoughts through the medium of expressionist drawing. The lines act as a barrier of what‘s an important, alarming issue, which should help the viewer focus on the issues within the frame. Our forests are the lifeblood – they balance life and wildlife. Many of these images may not have an alarming vision but it is alarming that these could be all gone in years to come.”
“I’m currently working on a large-scale project and will be finished at the end of May. If you want to work with me in any capacity please get in touch via my website or Instagram.”
