Two BRILLIANT new photographic exhibitons have opened this week. We were blown away by Amazônia at the Science Museum and the Wildlife Photography exhibition at the NHM is as great as ever. Two must see's for this half term!
Plunge into the depths of the Brazilian rainforest as you weave your way through 200 epic black-and-white photographs. The brilliant Sebastião Salgado has spent six years capturing dramatic landscapes, immense waterfalls, super stormy skies and the indigenous communities of the Brazilian Amazon. Cutting-edge science twinned with some of the best photography we have seen. Learn of flying rivers and epic rainstorms. The magical soundscape by Jean-Michel Jarre transports you right into the heart of the rainforest. The message is a clear one - act now before we reach the final tipping paint BUT there is hope too. Opens today. Tickets: adults £10, U11s free. GO! Book here.
