Shane P. White has been wandering the globe for nearly thirty years – the last two decades traveling continuously across every continent. Experiencing first-hand, taking the time to engage and visually recording our environments slowly and thoughtfully, he seeks to understand and capture the complexity of the world around us as it grows smaller, less diverse and threatened. An ‘accidental conservationist’, he chose to go professional in order to share with others the vastness and wonder of our delicate ‘blue ball’ and try in some small but significant way to express how important it is to protect and preserve.
Gregarious in nature when faced by humanity, he is far more at home being a recluse as a solo photographer. In the quiet and beauty of first light as the sun sweeps away the dark of night to expose a unique and spectacular vista, to the intimacy of understanding the diverse characters of animals far better than his own.
He maintains storage, since he is still far too young to settle down or have a home, in: London - for Europe and the solitude of the Arctic he loves. Bangkok - for the diversity of cultures and food he loves in Asia; And Cape Town - for being the most beautifully located city on our planet and an Africa base for the animals he loves.
