The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s photography exhibition, highlighting the beauty of the natural world and the impact of human activities, will be held Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome from 10th to 20th September 2021.
The most beautiful photos from the Foundation’s International Environmental Photography Prize will be presented to raise public awareness of the issues surrounding the accelerated loss of biodiversity.
“The choice of theme is significant. It reflects the lessons to be learned from the global crisis we are facing: human health depends on the health of animals and our environment,” says Olivier Wenden, Vice-President and CEO of the Foundation. “The photographs presented invite us to reflect on our relationship with wildlife and urge us to act in favour of global health.”
The city of Rome has given its patronage to the exhibition, which follows on from the first edition of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s Environmental Photography Prize. This competition involved nearly 6,000 photographs submitted by around 1,400 photographers from all over the world, in three categories: ‘Incredible Wildlife’, ‘Wildlife in Crisis’ and ‘Reasons for Hope’. The photographs illustrate the contrast between the beauty of wildlife and the terrible impact of human activities on natural habitats.
“It is imperative to raise public awareness of the need to develop a more harmonious relationship with nature. We are honoured that the city of Rome shares this conviction and has agreed to host this event,” says Marco Colasanti, President of the Foundation’s Italian branch.
