The Society’s remarkable exhibition of aerial photographs, Britain from the Air, is now on display at the home of geography. The free exhibition forms part of a wider initiative by the Society to engage the public with the UK’s places, environments and people.
Britain from the Air opened today at the Society’s headquarters on Exhibition Road, South Kensington. The exhibition is on display for free in the Pavilion and gardens until 12 July.
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 is one of the Society’s most popular exhibitions and we’re excited to bring it to London for the first time.
“The exhibition offers a fantastic opportunity for visitors to see Britain’s incredible natural and human landscapes from a unique perspective. Intricate patterns, often hidden at ground level, are revealed in our aerial images, and the environmental, social and economic forces that create our diverse landscapes are exposed and explained.”
Britain from the Air was created jointly by the Society and street gallery pioneers Wecommunic8. It is sponsored by world travel clothing company Craghoppers and supported by the Ernest Kleinwort Charitable Trust, Ordnance Survey and Rolex.
This conference looks at why and how we should respond to envionmental change, with reference to science and society as well as the moral dimensions of climate change.
