Because photography is also Art.
Now in its fifty-second instalment, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition provides a showcase for the world’s very best nature photography. The competition is owned by the world-renowned and trusted British institution, the Natural History Museum.
American biologist, explorer, photographer, and filmmaker Tim Laman was named winner of the prestigious annual competition for his image Entwined Lives, showing a critically endangered Bornean orangutan in the Indonesian rainforest.
His cameras are his tools for telling the stories of rare and endangered wildlife, and revealing some of earth’s wildest places. His aims are to explore and document poorly known species, and promote awareness and conservation. Tim spends many months a year on expeditions to study and photograph the biodiversity of earth’s richest realms working with the National Geographic Society and Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
