Renowned photography exhibition opens at Candie

Saturday 04 March 2023


Guernsey Museums has opened the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, on loan from London’s Natural History Museum.

Remarkable photographs are on show which demonstrate the natural beauty of the planet, alongside short videos, quotes, and scientific insights.

Films will also be screened showing the photographers behind the cameras. 

Every entry was judged anonymously on its creativity, originality, and technical excellence by an international panel of industry experts. 

It opened yesterday and will run until Sunday 23 April, opening daily between 10:00 and 14:00.

The images will also be shown in the UK and tour internationally in Australia, Canada, Germany, and the USA.

Dr Doug Gurr, Director of the Natural History Museum, said: “Captured by some of the best photography talent from around the world, the photographs encourage curiosity, connection and wonder. 

“These inspiring images convey human impact on the natural world in a way that words cannot – from the urgency of declining biodiversity to the inspiring bounce back of a protected species.”
