Hand in for Round 2 of the PDI internal competition on Thursday.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is now on at the Natural History Museum. 100 winning and highly commended images, judged to be the most creative and technically accomplished of tens of thousands submitted by amateur and professional photographers from around the world are on display in a sympathetically designed exhibition space. This year’s exhibition runs until 3 March 2013 and full details can be found at www.nhm.ac.uk/wildphoto.
The Illuminated World exhibition on until 17 March 2013 at Hall Place, Bexley, DA5 1PQ showcases local man, Arthur Boswell’s (1880-1966) rare collection of early Victorian photography that he took and compiled throughout his lifetime. Illuminated World will provide a magical encounter of life in Victorian times and an appreciation of the customs and cultures that would have enchanted observers during an era when people were travelling more than ever before. Visitors can also learn about photographic techniques of the time with original apparatus on display. Unearthed from Bexley’s local archive, this is the first time the images created from original glass lantern slides have been on show to the public and the selection represents only a fraction of the total of some 14,000 images.
