'POWERFUL' PHOTO EXHIBITION COMES TO COUNTRY ESTATE

An exhibition of striking photos calling people to "protect our planet" has opened at a country estate.

Earth Photo, a yearly international exhibition and awards programme dedicated to films and images about our world is being hosted by Stourhead, a National Trust property in Wiltshire.

The collection will be on display at the country home until 9 September.

"These powerful images call us to come together to protect our planet and the places we love," said Betsy Ogilvie, Stourhead's senior visitor experience officer.

“We’re excited to be hosting this impactful exhibition sharing the work of talented photographers and telling stories of adaptation to, and impact of, our changing climate from around the world," she added.

The entries for this year's competition have been whittled down to 31 photographers and 13 films, featuring images spanning from burning landscapes and bodies of water to oceans of rubbish and endangered animals.

Stourhead is one of a number of National Trust properties and Forestry England sites to display the shortlisted artworks, presented in collaboration with the Royal Geographical Society, on a national tour.
