Milan hosts, once again, a beautiful collection of works resulting from one of the most important photo contests in the world: the Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Now on its 58th edition, the photo exhibition can be admired at the new Hangar 21 location in via Tortona (inside the Superstudiopiù). This is the eleventh edition in the Lombard capital, organised by the cultural association Radicediunopercento, under the patronage of the Municipality of Milan.
The 100 prize-winning images on display have been selected from the 58th edition of the photography competition organised by the Natural History Museum in London, which saw the participation of 40,000 shots from 93 countries, taken by professional and amateur photographers.
The images portray rare animals in their habitat, unusual behaviour and landscapes, and offer powerful examples on the beauty of nature but also its fragility to be defended and preserved. This year’s edition will be special and with a completely new look. Images are presented for the first time on large-scale light panels that bring them ‘alive’ and make them an even more immersive and engaging spectacle of nature, providing a visual experience that will leave the audience breathless.
The winner of the prestigious title Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022 is American photographer Karine Aigner with “The big buzz”. The Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022 was instead awarded to 16-year-old Katanyou Wuttichaitanakorn from Thailand, for the image “The beauty of baleen”.
The exhibition shows all the winning and finalist images divided into categories. These include Amphibians and reptiles, Birds, Invertebrates, Mammals, Animals in their environment, Urban Fauna, Animals in their environment, The Art of Nature, Oceans, Plants and fungiThe underwater world, Urban nature, Animal portraits, Wetlands and a section dedicated to young people (photographers up to 10 years old, 11 to 14 years old and 15 to 17 years old).
Other important sections are the documentary categories Wildlife Photographr Portfolio Award, Wildlife Photojournalism and Wildlife Photojournalist Story Award and Rising Star Portfolio Award.
