2020VISION’s team of 20 top UK nature photographers, such as Andy Rouse and Joe Cornish, will gather at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) on Thursday, 5 July 2012 for the launch of the 2020VISION open-air street gallery exhibition.
Bringing together the very best images from the 2020VISION collection, this large-format open-air exhibition is part of the 2020VISION Roadshow which, between now and 2015, will tour the UK.
In a press release, 2020VISION said the roadshow will be used to 'communicate to millions of people the link between restoring and reconnecting our fragmented wild places and our own well being - to show that healthy ecosystems are not just good for wildlife, but are something we all depend upon.'
The exhibition will be in situ at RBGE’s John Hope Gateway from 2 July until 30 September 2012. RBGE’s Regius Keeper, Professor Steve Blackmore said: "These beautiful images remind us just how important our natural heritage in the quality of our lives. I hope they will cause everyone who sees them to reflect on what more they can do to cherish and protect nature."
In addition to the pro photographer team, 20 young photographers have also been busy shooting images over the last 20 months. One of the photographers, Katrina Martin, who will speak at the exhibition launch about her involvement in the project, said: "This is the first time so many top photographers have come together to speak on behalf of conservation and it’s been very exciting for me to be part of that team."
