Moors Valley Country Park and Forest near Ringwood is launching a new outdoor exhibition.

Visitors can see a selection of images from Earth Photo shortlisted works which are on display from today (Monday, July 11).

Earth Photo, the international competition and exhibition created by Forestry England and the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers), showcases photographs and videos that document the natural world, its breathtaking beauty, and its ever-growing fragility.

The Moors Valley outdoor exhibition will display 29 of the 55 final shortlisted entries by 35 different artists.

The selection of images is taken from the five Earth Photo categories, People, Place, Nature, Changing Forests, and A Climate of Change.

Linda Laker, Recreation Manager, Forestry England said: “We are delighted to be one of six of the nation’s forests hosting this touring Earth Photo exhibition. The selection of images in this year’s exhibition are truly stunning as well as thought-provoking, from capturing the impact of a tropical cyclone on wedding celebrations in West Bengal, India, to beautiful woodlands here in the UK affected by storms and beginning a process of regeneration, which are shown in the Changing Forests category.

“Being able to see these images in the heart of Moors Valley Country Park and Forest is a very special experience and we welcome everyone to come and see them.”

The exhibition is running until Sunday, September 19.
