▫️▫️FACES ▫️LIFE ▫️TRUTH ▫️▫️ • Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 Grand Title award - winning image. • Sad reflections on life and everything. . Issues that are challenging and WE ALL NEED TO SEE • #WE #ARE #THE #PROBLEM@Regrann @natural_history_museum • Congratulations to Brent Stirton @brentstirton who has won the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 Grand Title award. . His image, "MEMORIAL TO A SPECIES", frames a recently shot and de-horned black rhino in South Africa’s Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. . Once the most numerous rhino species, black rhinos are now critically endangered due to poaching and the illegal international trade in rhino horn, one of the world’s most corrupt illegal wildlife networks. . Competition judge Roz Kidman Cox says: . ‘To make such a tragic scene almost majestic in its sculptural power deserves the highest award. There is rawness, but there is also great poignancy and therefore dignity in the fallen giant.’ Be one of the first to see all the winning photos of #WPY53 in person when the new Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition opens at the Museum on Fri 20 Oct.
