The Society’s remarkable exhibition of aerial photographs, Britain from the Air, is now on display in Nottingham city centre. The free exhibition forms part of a wider initiative by the Society to engage the public with the UK’s places, environments and people.
The Britain from the Air exhibition is on display for free on Station Street until 28 February 2017.
The contemporary aerial images provide unique perspectives of some of the UK’s most striking and thought-provoking landscapes, with the exhibition’s panels exploring the dynamic processes that shape our landscapes but are often forgotten about.
Dr. Rita Gardner, Director of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), said:
“Britain from the Air provides a fantastic opportunity to see Britain’s natural and human landscapes from a unique perspective and to explore the social, economic and environmental forces that shaped them.
“We’re delighted that Britain from the Air is on display in Nottingham. I encourage everyone to visit the exhibition while it is on display in Nottingham’s city centre.”
Britain from the Air was created jointly by the Society and street gallery pioneers Wecommunic8. It is supported by world travel clothing company Craghoppers, the Ernest Kleinwort Charitable Trust and Rolex. It was brought to Nottingham by Nottingham City Council.
