Name: Paul White

Location: Carpathian mountains of Transylvania.

My current documentary photography project concentrates on pastoralism in Romania, with a specific emphasis on transhumance. This project covers the day to day lives and livelihoods of shepherds from cheese making in the mountains to coexistence with large predators, utilising livestock guardian dogs to protect their flocks.
