BRITISH WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS 9

INTRODUCED BY STEPHEN MOSS    Book Number: 89655    Product format: Hardback

The Wildlife Photography Awards aim not only to find the greatest photography but also to celebrate the rich biodiversity of the British Isles. Well over 150 photos are reproduced in this 2018 collection with notes by the photographers, both professional and amateur, about how they came to choose and track down their subjects. The overall winner is Paul Colley with "Contrails at Dawn", a study of bats whizzing across the picture captured with an infra-red camera and lighting system that took 14 months to develop. The section on Animal Portraits includes many arresting images, for instance Philip Selby's mute swan filling the frame as it thunders towards the photographer, who only just pulled out at the last moment. Neil McIntyre's "Grumpy Mountain Hare Leveret" is just that, with the animal staring at the viewer with a characteristically sour expression. Jennie Smith's "Cold Embrace" uses a macro lens to depict a pair of mating lizards, and Luke Wilkinson's "On a Mission" shows a grey seal bull moving in to attack another bull in the golden light of the Norfolk coast. The category Urban Wildlife produces some astonishing images, including Sam Rowley's Tube mice living their whole lives in London's Underground network, and Alex Witt's "Graveyard Family" depicting roe deer very much at home in a cemetery in Woking. Ross Hoddinott's back-lit "Mushrooms" have a surreal look, and Max More's "Beech in Winter" pays homage to a native species. The competition serves to highlight the existential crisis faced by this country's wildlife in the face of climate change, habitat loss and pollution, and emphasizes that wildlife is central to our wellbeing as individuals and a nation. 208pp, colour photos on most pages.
