The National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming explores conservation themes in it exhibitions.
This winter, the American museum is looking at the evolution of wildlife art with exhibitions including Elegy: The African Photography of Nick Brandt (selection above) which runs from January 18 – April 29, 2014.
“Known for not using telephoto lenses so as to present animals in their environmental context and to offer a sense of intimate connection, Nick Brandt’s transcendent photographs inspire appreciation for their subjects as well as the artist behind the camera,” says the museum.
