Join the Nation Museum of Natural History in celebrating their FotoWeek exhibitions!
Nature photographers travel the globe to document its vast beauty and diversity. They brave the elements to create images that transport us into the natural world and inspire a sense of wonder. Their memories are our discoveries and their visual storytelling from the field rekindles our passion for outdoor adventure. Every year extraordinary talent is recognized through the Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Awards, a global photo competition open to the public. Named for nature photographer and conservationist, Windland Smith Rice, the exhibition presents a collection of 83 fine art prints accompanied by a video. (On view through September 2017)
