Following the exhibition previews held in July, the Society’s Earth Photo exhibition will now be open to the public on weekdays from 10:00am to 5:00pm from Monday 2 August to Wednesday 25 August.
To reassure visitors and help keep everyone safe, the exhibition expands out onto the Society’s terrace to allow for extra space and fresh air, and a maximum of 30 visitors are allowed in the exhibition space at any one time.
The exhibition is self-guided and features 50 of the best environmental photographs and five films that document the Earth in all its diversity.
Developed in partnership with Forestry England, entries to this year’s competition explored the themes of people, place, nature, changing forests and ‘a climate of change’.
From urban orchards in Spain, striking aurora borealis in Norway and mangrove conservation in Sri Lanka, to eco-clothing pageants in the Philippines, deforestation of red cedars in Canada and more, the selected images capture a sense of our often awe-inspiring and always dynamic world at a time when human influence and activity is in sharp focus.

A selection of the shortlisted images will also be on display in Forestry England forests Dalby Forest, Moors Valley, and Grizedale.
