The Lichfield Street gallery is hosting the Natural History Museum's 52nd Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition from July 22 till October 1.

The dazzling display of photographs includes breath-taking images of some of the natural world's most astonishing sights, capturing fascinating animal behaviour and awe-inspiring landscapes.

The blockbuster show, which won critical acclaim when it premiered in London, features 75 photographs displayed in an ultra-modern lightbox format.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world's most astonishing and challenging sights. Founded in 1964, and organised and produced by the Natural History Museum, it is one of the longest running photography competitions in the world.

Now in its fifty-second year, the 2017 competition received more than 40,000 submissions from amateur and professional photographers from more than 95 countries. Every year, the best images submitted are selected to form the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, which tours venues across the world to millions of visitors, helping to ensure that biodiversity and sustainability remain at the forefront of public awareness.

Last year's show, which Wolverhampton Art Gallery also hosted, attracted thousands of visitors.
