This exhibition is on until 29 February at the Te Manawa Museum of Art, Science and History in Palmerston North.

Hugh Scott has been and reports:

It’s well worth a visit – some absolutely stunning images, in many cases with details of how they were taken. I visited it recently and was moved by their beauty and power and the skill of the photographers, some of whom had made their own equipment to make the shot possible. Give yourself a good hour to wander through it.

The cost is $7.50 for adults, $5.00 for pensioners and students.

There’s a gallery of small versions of some of the images in association with the UK Natural History Museum exhibition. Here’s just one that I’ve linked to.
