The work of internationally renowned photographers will reach new audiences on the streets of Shrewsbury, Shropshire, in a special exhibition inspired by ‘Evolution’ and the town’s links to Charles Darwin.
Acclaimed photography agency Magnum Photos has curated an exhibition of stunning photographs from the world’s leading photographers to display in the town of Darwin’s birth next year.
The free outdoor show, a first of its kind for a UK town, will launch on 9th February 2017 and coincides with International Darwin Day and Darwin’s birthday on 12th February. It will be staged at two sites and runs until 23rd April.
The ten-week exhibition also links to Magnum Photos’ 70th anniversary which is to be marked by a series of international events, projects and partnerships.
The exhibition is being staged thanks to a collaboration between Shrewsbury Business Improvement District (BID), The Hive Arts Centre, GRAIN Photography Hub...
