The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition returns to the Natural History Museum in style, yet again providing a mesmerising glimpse into the wonders of the natural world. Celebrating the drama and splendour of wildlife across the world in all kinds of environments, the exhibition is suitable for all ages.
Since its origination in the 1960s, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition has been the leading event of its kind, with thousands upon thousands of entries from photographers from all over the globe. The photographs cover a range of categories, from Animal Portraits to Urban Wildlife to Underwater Worlds, and also gives budding young photographers a chance to shine in the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition.
The 100 winning images are displayed in sleek backlit installations. As you walk around, you experience a wide variety of emotions as you are shown images such as a heart-wrenching shot of a gazelle calf being closely pursued by four cheetah cubs, a humorous composition of a mouse sneaking a nibble of peanut butter on toast, and upsetting images of rhino poaching.
We highly recommend that you spare the time to visit this fantastic exhibition on your next trip to London, and you can easily get to the Natural History Museum from Flemings – hop on the Piccadilly line southbound from Green Park underground station and then hop off three stops later at South Kensington.
The exhibition is showing at the Natural History Museum until 3 March 2013.
The year-long worldwide tour of the exhibition begins this month.
