We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Graeme Purdy has been awarded 2nd place in the Sony World Photography awards 2021, in the wildlife and nature category.
Born and raised in Northern Ireland Graeme Purdy started his photographic journey in his modest school darkroom a world away from the African plains where much of his time is now spent and a little bit of his true soul resides.
Graeme Purdy shares a concern of so many others that wildlife and their habitat are now under threat more than ever. Nature can appear cruel at times but when left alone it has a balance to it. Now wildlife must compete with people and the negative impact we frequently have on the environment. Graeme Purdy has derived infinite pleasure from the natural world and through his photography aims to convey the intimacy, allure and raw beauty of this fading world.
Graeme Purdy’s work is expressed in evocative and engaging monochrome prints designed to create a classic and timeless image in keeping with the majesty and integrity of his subjects.
