Landscape Photographer Of The Year Exhibition

You may recall that I was recently awarded commendations for two images at the Landscape Photographer Of The Year 2011 competition. You can see the two images on display at the exhibition at The National Theatre on London’s South Bank until 28th January. It’s an amazing collection of photographs, the best photographs from tens of thousands of entries each year; it’s well worth a visit if you like this sort of photography as there are images from some of the most talented landscape photographers in the UK. Of my two images, the mushroom image “Under The Shelter” has received the most publicity, and here’s me grinning in front of it at the private view last week.

The private view was a great opportunity for me to meet some of the other winning photographers from the competition. The images are all shown at an appropriately large scale so many of them are more impressive than when viewed in the book. In particular, this image by Damian Shields has far greater impact at exhibition size and I was able to congratulate him on this.

The exhibition has generated quite a bit of interest in the national press. Here is the mushroom pic on the centre spread of The Guardian as part of their selection from the exhibition last week:

… and here it is in Amateur Photographer magazine:

But the most exciting appearance, of course, was in an article in the Crewe Guardian:

It’s also been chosen by Time Out for their selection and, less importantly, here in The Daily Mail.

Here’s more from the exhibition, including one showing a slideshow of images projected onto the side of the National Theatre:

If you can’t make it to the exhibition, there’s always the book:

The mushroom image was also selected as one of the ten images for the postcard pack of the exhibition.
