A shortlist of 50 exceptional photographs and films that document the earth in all its diversity is being presented at the Royal Geographical Society in London from 23 July to 21 September 2018 and will then transfer to Grizedale Forest. A selection of these images is also touring to two additional Forestry Commission England's sites from 27 July 2018 for the inaugural Earth Photo exhibition.
Developed jointly by Forestry Commission England and the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers), and supported by Cox & Kings and Stanfords, Earth Photo aims to enable a better understanding of the world around us, focussing on four key themes - People, Nature, Place and Change.
