Ambitious photography conservation project is launched
April sees the launch of 2020VISION, Britainâ€™s most ambitious photography-based conservation initiative ever.
Twenty of the countryâ€™s top wildlife and nature photographers have, for the first time, come together with leading conservation partners to document the value of restoring Britainâ€™s battered ecosystems. Â The Phototeam, which includes top shooters Chris Packham, Joe Cornish and Andy Rouse, will be joined by videographers and sound recordists, and will visit key locations throughout Britain, from the ancient Scottish pine forests to the suburban garden pond.
Peter Cairns, 2020VISIONâ€™s coordinator and one of its photographers said: â€œEcosystem thinking is something that is now prevalent in the scientific community, but the value of a wilder Britain, where ecosystems function as they should, has not yet been imaginatively communicated to a mainstream audience. This project bridges that gap using the motivational language of great photography, a language in which everyone can find relevance. Our aim is to take ecosystem thinking to a new level and a new audience. Itâ€™s about making nature cool.â€
