Deserted landscapes stretching as far as the eye can see, hungry birds scavenging for unsuspecting fish, billowing waves crashing down on white, sandy shores—Mother Nature's wonders are as diverse and mesmerising as life itself. Our curated collection of nature photography invites you to welcome our planet's most wondrous flora and fauna onto your walls. Because what is more relaxing than a quick nap by the beach or lunch in the forest?
Capturing nature's finest
Before the invention of photography, plants and animals from far-away lands were recorded in the pages of dusty encyclopaedias with the help of watercolours, etchings, and illustrations Luckily for us, in 1826 the French inventor Joseph Niépce took the very first photograph. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Today, nature photography is one of the most popular subjects amongst amateur and professional photographers alike. Though digital photography has arguably flooded an already oversaturated industry, analogue and polaroid cameras are currently celebrating a well-deserved comeback, thanks to their nostalgic charm.
The adventure of a lifetime
The world outside has so much more to offer than memes and movie marathons. And most of us don't have to travel far to immerse ourselves in the fascinating realms the wilderness has to offer. Cameras in tow, our artists have wandered through forests, trekked across plains, and climbed snowy peaks, so that we can enjoy the diversity of our dear planet Earth from the comfort of our homes.
Let yourself be inspired by rolling fields of wildflowers, evergreen crowns of trees, and beyond with nature photography from all corners of the globe.
Into the wild
Nature photographers looking to share their bodies of work with even larger audiences submit their snapshots to renowned photography competitions worldwide. As outdoor fanatics, our personal favourite is the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award, which was founded by the BBC's very own Wildlife Magazine in 1964. Perhaps someday a JUNIQE artist could make the cut, who knows...
Fun fact: In 2009, José Luis Rodriguez was stripped of his title after being accused of staging a photograph of a wild wolf using a tame animal.
