European Wildlife Photographer of the Year: Saturday 26 November 2016 to Sunday 15 January 2017
This exhibition features all the winning photographs in the European Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2015 competition. The 84 exceptional images showcase the beauty and diversity of the natural world, capturing unique moments such as a new-born seal’s first glimpse of the world and an ant’s tiny landscape magnified into a colourful ‘fairyland’. The exhibition also includes overall winner Richard Peters’ photograph of an urban fox, ‘Shadow Walker’.
The European Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest is owned by the GDT-Society of German Photographers.
