Wildlife Photographer of the Year showcases stunning images celebrating the diversity of the natural world, from intimate animal portraits to astonishing wild landscapes.

The exhibition shows 99 of the best pictures from the 2020 edition of the Natural History Museum’s prestigious annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

Among the displayed images is the winning photo, The Embrace by Russian photographer Sergey Gorshkov. Gorshkov spent 10 months following rare Siberian tigers in eastern Russia before he captured his winning image, which shows an adult female marking her territory on a tree.

A photo of a young fox trying to hide its dinner from its hungry siblings won the title of 2020 Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year for Liina Heikkinen of Finland.

The photos in Wildlife Photographer of the Year shine a light on stories and species around the world and encourage a future of advocating for the planet.
