A unique collection of photographs showcasing the incredible landscape, wildlife and people of the Falkland Islands is coming to London’s Mall Galleries.
“We Are Falklands” is an exhibition with a difference. The photographs were sourced by the Falkland Islands Government, which ran a competition to find the very best pictures from the Islands’ many skilled photographers.
The result is an amateur photography exhibition of professional quality, which reveals a community proud of their beautiful environment, self-sufficiency and historic links with the United Kingdom.
Krysteen Ormond, Public Relations and Media Manager with the Falkland Islands Government, said: “These photographs are a wonderful showcase of the Falkland Islands, and its beautiful landscape, wildlife and people. The exhibition is a brilliant introduction to life on the Islands, and we hope that a large number of visitors will see the exhibition and be tempted to come to the Islands to see our wonderful home for themselves.”
Andy Pollard, one of the amateur photographers whose pictures form part of the exhibition, said:
“I’m very pleased that my photographs were chosen to be part of this exhibition. The quality of the pictures reflects the outstanding natural beauty of the Islands, which I am proud to call my home.”
The exhibition – which is supported by Falkland Islands Holdings PLC – will run from Monday, 21st July until Sunday, 27th July 2014 at the Mall Galleries, near Trafalgar Square. Admission to the exhibition is free.
