The landmark outdoor photo exhibition “Wild Wonders of Europe” is coming to Stockholm, opening on Tuesday, 25 June 2013. A special selection of images from Rewilding Europe’s rewilding activities is also on display.
Following on from its acclaimed success in Madrid’s El Retiro Park last autumn, the exhibition now continues its tour of Europe, coming to Sweden for the first time this summer with the support of the main partners Rewilding Europe and the Svenska PostkodLotteriet, together with Japan Photo, Nikon Nordic, WWF Sweden, Select Collection, the Stockholm Culture Festival, Nature’s Best and the Stockholms Läns Landsting regional board.
The exhibition showcases 100 impressive, life size photos from all 48 European countries, revealing the stunning natural treasures of our continent. The unseen, unexpected and unforgettable wildlife and wild places that most of us maybe don’t even know exist. It’s about the joy of wildness. About what is still out there and what we risk losing. Why it matters to us. And why we need to protect it.
Wild Wonders of Europe is the world’s largest conservation communication initiative, ever.
A unique pan-European initiative directed by Magnus Lundgren, Florian Möllers, Staffan Widstrand and Bridget Wijnberg, that is a celebration of our common European natural heritage and the amazing story of Europe’s wildlife comeback, thanks to decades of nature conservation work.
The emotional power of breathtaking photography, taken by 69 of Europe’s finest nature and wildlife photographers commissioned by Wild Wonders of Europe for 135 photo missions reveal to us the natural wonders that we are at risk of losing, demonstrate that conservation really works, and that we just need more of it and more kinds of it.
We now bring you this uplifting message where no less than seven of Sweden’s world-renowned photographers were selected to do assignments – Magnus Lundgren, Staffan Widstrand, Anders Geidemark, Magnus Elander, Martin Falklind, Mireille de la Lez and Peter Lilja.
The exhibition will remain on display at Raoul Wallenbergs Torg in central Stockholm throughout the summer until 29th September, is lit at night and offers free entry 24 hours a day.
