There are just a few days left to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at Candie.

Sunday 16 May is the final day, after Guernsey Museum has been the only museum in the British Isles able to showcase the exhibition. 

The annual competition from the Natural History Museum London attracts approximately 40,000 entries from over 90 countries and the breathtaking images demonstrate the beauty and fragility of the natural world.

The next temporary exhibition at Candie is in partnership with the Guernsey Photography Festival and showcases the work of world-renowned American photographer Alec Soth.

‘Looking for Love’ is a collection of Soth’s early work and will be on display at Candie from 28 May until 4 July 2021. The Brian White Gallery will be closed from 17-27 May to allow the changeover to take place.

Alec Soth is widely regarded as one of the most important living, contemporary photographers. He is known for his large-scale projects that focus on the American mid- west and the more off-beat and melancholic aspects of life there. His work is held in private and public collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Walker Art Center. He has published a number of books, first editions of which are highly collectable.

Guernsey Museum is open daily 10.00-17.00. Normal admission rates apply, so Discovery Pass holders and accompanying children are admitted free.
