‘Entwined lives’ by Tim Laman (USA) – Winner, Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016
The National History Museum has revealed its Wildlife Photographer of the Year winners, encompassing dramatic photographs of leopards, parakeets and pangolins.
American Tim Laman was the overall winner, thanks to his orangutan photo which didn’t require fancy equipment and lenses (it was taken on a GoPro) but did require three days of climbing.
“It’s a difficult-to-achieve shot,” commented chair of judges, Lewis Blackwell.
“This is very often what wins Wildlife Photographer of the Year: a picture that has a high degree of technical difficulty, but one that also has something to say; and Tim’s image certainly has that as well.”
