4 reviews of Wildlife Photographer of the Year in English
An annual exhibition at the natural History Museum, that I have become addicted to! Really great line up of wild shots, mostly animals (there is one category for landscape only) ranging from child novices (I suspect more than a few of them are well on their way to being the next big hit creating documentary material). One part that particularly appeals to me is the listing with the pictures, the map marker so you know where it was taken, information about the animal in the shot, a statement about the shot from the photographer, and details of the camera that was used to take it.
Often busy, which can be a drain, but it is popular for a reason. Would be great to include a start to finish work- one that incorporates printing techniques too- is that too old school of me?
The difficulty with photography exhibitions is that there are a fair few misconceptions about what should be accepted as quality. For me, it's the ability of a photo to tell a story in a still frame and to entice and excite the viewer into a sense of awe.
Every one of the photographers at this years "Wildlife photographer of the year" managed to make you feel so much with each photo holding it's own sense of fragility and uniqueness... Fantastic! The surprise hit? The baby emperor penguin looking a bit concerned at the size of someone's foot...
Went to the exhibition today, absolutely fantastic! The children loved it too. Very easy to get to by train and tube (two stops from Victoria) It finishes on 27 April if you get a chance go, you will not be disappointed, and you can wander round the V&A afterwards - always a treat
This annual exhibition is simply one of the most inspiring, fascinating and beautiful exhibitions around. Photos are mounted on lightboxes around the exhibit space as visitors amble from photo to photo, first gazing at the display then studying the informative blurbs accompanying each piece. This process takes patience when it is busy - avoid peak times to maximise enjoyment.
The photos are frequently awe-inspiring, with vivid colours and stunning scenery displayed across a range of categories that includes Animal Behaviour, Endangered Wildlife and Junior Awards. There is always something to captivate everyone, from kids to cynical adults.
You're guaranteed a memorable, thought-provoking and educational experience. Essential viewing.
