Image by Sue Jugnarain, Earth Photo shortlist
A shortlist of 50 exceptional photographs and four films that document the earth in all its diversity has been chosen for the Society’s inaugural Earth Photo exhibition this summer. Developed in partnership with the Forestry Commission England, and supported by Cox & Kings and Stanfords, Earth Photo aims to enable a better understanding of the world around us. This year’s competition and exhibition focuses on four key themes: people, nature, place and change.
Over 1,280 submissions were received from 19 different countries, reflecting the global appeal of the competition. The images were judged by a dynamic panel from the fields of geography, ecology, photography and film including Yvonne Barmettler from the Natural History Museum in Basel, Switzerland, photographer Marissa Roth, Clare Grafik who is Head of Exhibitions at The Photographers’ Gallery in London, author and curator Deborah Island and Paul Presley who is the Editor of Geographical Magazine.Prizes for category winners will be awarded at a private ceremony at the Society in September 2018.
The Earth Photo exhibition will run from Monday 23 July to Friday 21 September. Opening times are Monday through to Friday from 10.00am-5.00pm, plus Saturdays from 10.00am-4.00pm. The exhibition will be closed on Sundays and bank holidays.
In addition to the exhibition in the Society’s Pavilion, Earth Photo will also tour to Forestry Commission England venues nationwide including Bedgebury Pinetum in Kent, the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire and Grizedale Forest in Cumbria.
