Joanna is currently exhibiting two shortlisted photographed alongside photographers and videographers from across the globe who have submitted their work in the following categories: People, Place, Nature, Changing Forests, and A Climate of Change. A judging panel made up of experts from the fields of photography, film, geography and environment selected the final 55 photos and videos by 36 artists.

From urban orchards in Spain, striking aurora borealis in Norway and mangrove conservation in Sri Lanka, to eco-clothing pageants in the Philippines, deforestation of red cedars in Canada and more, the selected images and videos capture a sense of our world at a time when human influence is in sharp focus.

The Earth Photo exhibition will be available to see at the Royal Geographical Society, in London, from Monday 2 August to Wednesday 25 August.

A selection of the shortlisted photos will be shown in Forestry England forests: outdoors at Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire, from 28 June to 19 September 2021; Moors Valley, Dorset, from 4 October to 19 December 2021; and indoors at Grizedale, Cumbria, from 20 December 2021 to 24 April 2022.
