From 28 May to 31 August, the Fortress of Bard will be the first Italian venue for the 56th Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, the world’s most prestigious nature photography contest, run by London’s Natural History Museum. The stunning images on display were selected by an international panel of eminent experts and wildlife photographers from over 49,000 shots submitted by photographers from all over the world.
The winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 award is Russian photographer Sergey Gorshkov with his photo entitled The Embrace. The image depicts a Siberian tiger, a highly endangered species, embracing an ancient Manchurian fir to mark his territory. It took the photographer over ten months to get this shot obtained by using motion sensor cameras.
