Wildlife Photographer of the Year – Portfolio 29
Rosamund Kidman Cox
For more than 50 years, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition has championed honest and ethical wildlife photography, while pushing the boundaries of artistic freedom, technical skill, and narrative excellence.
This powerful collection of pictures features all 100 winning photographs from the 2019 competition. The collection represents the work of many international photographers, both professionals and amateurs. The photographs are chosen by an international jury for their artistic merit and originality, from categories that represent a diversity of natural subjects. The range of styles is diverse, as is the genre of photography, including action, macro, underwater, landscape, or environmental reportage.
Each photograph is accompanied by an extended caption and there is an introduction by one of the world’s most respected nature photographers. This stunning book is the ideal gift for photography fans and for those who have visited the exhibition.
The Royal Museum Shop is operated by the Royal BC Museum Foundation. All proceeds from the sale of merchandise go directly towards supporting the many fine programs and special events at the Royal BC Museum.
