PHOTOGRAPHS capturing the odd behavior of wildlife and the diversity of the natural world will be on display in the city next month.
The Brighton Museum and Art Gallery is hosting the world-famous Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition from 22nd October.
The competition “sheds light on stories and species from around the world”, with images on loan from the Natural History Museum in London at Brighton Gallery.
Hedley Swain, CEO of Brighton and Hove Museums, said: “We are delighted to have the Wildlife Photographer of the Year return to the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
“It’s always popular with visitors who love the amazing images that show wildlife at its most elemental and wonderful.
“This year our show will run at the same time as the Natural History Museum, allowing residents to see this remarkable exhibition without traveling to London.”
The winning images from this year’s entries, including the prestigious Grand Title Award winners, will be announced on October 11, 2022 during a glamorous awards ceremony hosted by wildlife presenter and conservationist Chris Packham.
The stunning photographs will be on display until January 22, 2023.
Entering its 59th year, the competition will begin on October 17th and end on December 8th, 2022.
It receives entries from more than 90 countries around the world.
dr Doug Gurr, director of the Natural History Museum, says: “These inspiring images convey the impact of humankind on nature in ways that words cannot express – from the urgency of biodiversity decline to the inspiring resurgence of a protected species.”
Photographs from the competition show animals from around the world from interesting perspectives, including the now-famous image of a polar bear in an abandoned house and the bright green frogs clinging to leaves.
This stunning image called Underwater Wonderland was taken by Tiina Törmänen. It’s a school of European bass that “seems to be floating in the clouds in this surreal scene. In reality, the clouds are algal blooms, a common consequence of pollution.”
The Brighton Museum and Art Gallery announced at the last minute on Wednesday that the women’s Euro trophy will be on display this Saturday.
