The world-renowned exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, will open at RAMM on 25 September 2021
We are delighted to be exhibiting this celebrated exhibition at RAMM and to be sharing it with the people of Exeter. Wildlife Photographer of the Year features exceptional images which capture fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world. Using photography’s unique emotive power to engage and inspire audiences, the images shine a light on stories and species around the world and encourage a future of advocating for the planet.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 50 years.
