I’m excited to tell you that renowned wildlife photographer Pete Cairns will be giving a talk about the 2020VISION project at the Birnam Arts Centre on the evening of Thursday 17th September at 7.30pm.
2020VISION is the most ambitious conservation photography project ever staged in the UK. 20 of the country’s top nature photographers spent two years bringing together a library of spell-binding imagery that reminds us why wild nature matters – to everyone. THE VISION, hosted by photographer Peter Cairns, provides an evening of inspirational imagery, music and personal anecdotes as well as an insight into the ethos behind 2020VISION.
