Photo featured in urban biodiversity photography exhibition

In a recent post “Any space for nature in Indian slums?” I reported on some recent findings from the Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) about the benefits of nature in the urban environment.

Recently, ATREE, along with the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) Bengaluru, and Citizen Matters, ran a photography competition and exhibition on this very subject, called “Nature in the City”. And I was lucky enough to have a photo exhibited!

 

“Nature in the City” Photography Exhibition and other events

My image: “Nature and Pottery – expect the unexpected”

Excitingly, next week this same exhibition will be displayed at the eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 11) to the United Nation’s Convention on Biological Diversity in Hyderabad.

It is great to see events like these that bring together the public and environmental researchers to discuss such important issues. Photography is a great tool for bridging this gap and one that I look forward to exploring further!
