Keiran Dodds

Kieran Dodds - Non-Fiction / Environment

Event info

Kieran Dodds (b. 1980) is a non-fiction photographer known for his research-driven photo stories and portraiture. His personal work considers the interplay of environment and culture, tracing global events through daily lives.
He lives in Scotland with his wife and twin daughters. His work is represented by Panos Pictures, London.

Projects include:-

The Third Pole

The Tibetan plateau is part of what is known as the Earth’s Third Pole, an area with more snow and ice than anywhere in the world except for the North and South Poles. In the eastern part of the plateau, Sanjiangyuan, or the Three-Rivers Headwaters reserve, acts as China’s water tower and is home to Tibet’s last nomads.


In the last 100 years, over 90 per cent of Ethiopia’s forests have been lost. Yet in the area east of Lake Tana, the source of the Blue Nile, green ‘church forests’ are scattered like islands across the arid landscape.

Border Patrol

Every photographer has a picture of a hedge, that cliché of deadpan landscapes, in their back catalogue. I began this photo series during daily permitted lockdown excursions in Edinburgh in March 2020. At a time of national crisis, the humble border hedge took on a renewed sense of purpose.
