The Wildlife Photographer of the year exhibition is well worth a visit. Open to the public from Saturday 22 June to 14 September the event features some of the most acclaimed works in the UK.
Ahead of the public opening, local officials and guests were invited to a preview evening. One of those to attend the event was Cllr David Elvidge.
Speaking to HU17.net he said;
“The photographs capture various images. Some are quite shocking as nature is brought to the exhibit in its most primitive form.”
“The details are there of how, where and by when these moments were captured.”
“As a result, you can go and marvel at the images or become immersed in their stories. It is up to you.”
“I would urge people to take the opportunity to go. As next year the exhibit will be moving to Sewerby Hall.”
Sculptures Of Show Perfectly Compliment Wildlife Photographer of Year
Alongside the photographs, sculptures are also on display by the artist Emma Storhard. These are dotted around the Treasure House adding to the exhibition.
Cllr Elvidge added;
“The wire and wicker sculptures by Emma Stothard are worth going to see and taking time to enjoy on their own. However, coupled with the photographs the whole experience is absolutely stunning.”
Furthermore, to accompany both the photography and also the art East Riding Council has planned a full series of events.
These events include a whole host of activities that will certainly appeal to people of all ages. There is an Awsome Animal Day aimed at children, while they are also holding Wildlife Photography Workshops.
