Wildlife Photographer of The Year
The world’s most prestigious exhibition of nature photography is back to Milan. This year, it will change its venue and be hosted in the spaces of Palazzo Francesco Turati (formerly Spazio Forma) on Via Meravigli 7.
100 prize-winning images from the 56th edition of the photography competition organized by London’s Natural History Museum, which saw 45,000 submissions from 95 countries, both by professional and amateur photographers. Selected at the end of last year by an international jury of experts, the finalist and winning photos depict rare animals in their habitat, unusual behavior, and extraordinary landscapes; the beauty of nature but also its fragility to be defended and preserved.
The winner of the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 title is Sergey Gorshkov with his work “The Embrace.” The image depicts a Siberian tiger, an endangered species, embracing an ancient Manchurian fir tree to mark its territory. It took more than eleven months to capture this shot using motion-sensor cameras.
