See the natural world in all its harsh and glorious beauty at this photography exhibition

The Powerhouse Museum has become a biodiverse forest of flora and fauna with the arrival of the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year exhibit. The exhibition will display the 2019 entrants to the photography competition.

Visitors can expect stunning portrayals of the biogregions of Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand and Antarctica, including up-close investigations of animals and sprawling landscape scenes. It includes photographs like the winning image, Mat Beetson’s ‘Fin Whale’s Demise’, which is a stunning but shocking image captured via drone of a fin whale beached and being circled by sharks on the coast of Western Australia.

Other category winners include the bioluminescent ghost mushroom captured by Marcia Riederer in Victoria; Ross Gudgeon’s delicate but deadly portrait of a decorator crab; and the powerful onslaught of water stilled by the lens of Neil Pritchard at Barron Falls in Queensland.

The exhibition is open until October 20 and entry is included in your ticket price to the Powerhouse.
