Housed in the North Gallery, this exhibition celebrates the career of an ecological and photographic change-maker, the pioneering wildlife photographer and documentary film maker Cherry Kearton


Cherry Kearton and his brother Richard took some of the first ever photographs of animals in their natural habitats – they were dedicated to shooting animals with a camera, not culling them for trophies.


36 never-before-seen images have been digitally printed from glass negatives discovered in a bureau by Kearton’s descendants, giving an insight into Kearton’s intrepid practice and his dedication to wildlife conservation.
