Planet Earth II brought us the world into our home - the stunning jaw-dropping photography and filming revealed the diversity and complexity as well as the beauty of the world. It was achieved by spending hours, days and weeks in the field.
This exhibition showcases the talent and dedication of Sussex-born, Washington resident Roger Wilmshurst who shows that you don’t have to travel more than 20 miles to be captivated by the stunning and dramatic.
Using his many years of experience, sensitivity to nature and deep understanding of his home county, Roger has mastered that rare quality of capturing that image which is The Nature of Sussex - be it landscape, ornithology or intimate scene. The 16 photographs on show in Horsham Museum and Art Gallery span some 30 years of colour photography, and with no Photoshop, just pure skill at using a camera.
Though Roger has only ever entered two competitions – his passion is for the photography itself rather than the competitive arena - he won first prize as BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year in the Bird Behaviour section in 1995; he has also been awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society and is currently the President of the Zoological Photographic Club, founded c.1898.
