Focusing on our rapidly changing planet the exhibition will feature more than 170 original works of art taken by enterprising photographers employing technology ranging from 19th Century plate-camera techniques to the use of planes, drones, robots and even satellites to capture vivid images of earth’s varied terrain – and even distant planets. Many of the major names in photography will be represented: Mitch Epstein, Nadav Kander, Ryan McGinley, Robert Adams, Simon Norfolk, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Lee Friedlander, Simon Roberts, Toshio Shibata, Robert Polidori and many others contributing spectacular imagery. Also featured will be striking images by a younger generation of photographers: Pieter Hugo, Susan Evans, Raphael Dallaporta, Penelope Umbrico, Mathieu Bernard-Reymond, and others.

    Hi, Tim mentioned that he had been to the exhibition when he talked to us at York last week. Very useful news, I shall definitely go when we go down to London next month. Thanks.
