An exhibition featuring showcasing the work of an experienced wildlife photographer will start at Walthamstow Wetlands next Tuesday (15th August).

Jane Addey, who has documented wildlife for over 25 years, will exhibit 40 of her shots at the Engine House at Walthamstow Wetlands until 31st October. The photos will include shots of polar bears in Svalbard, Norway, lions in sub-Saharan Africa, and shots of wildlife in the Shetland Islands and a photo of a red deer at the Knepp Castle Rewilding Reserve in West Sussex.

A centrepiece of the show is a photograph of a leopard jumping from branch to branch at Londolozi Private Game reserve, Sabi Sands, South Africa.

The powerful snap will feature in a leopard photography book out later this year called Remembering Leopards. The book is fundraising for global leopard conservation efforts. Jane’s photo was selected to be in the book after she submitted as part of a competition; it was one of 20 selected from over 3,500 wildlife photographers from around the world and will be published alongside leopard photos from many renown wildlife photographers.

Jane told the Echo: “I hope this exhibition encourages people to do what they can to look after the diverse wildlife this planet has”.
