The Natural History Museum just published a new book titled “Unforgettable Underwater Photography“, stunning underwater photographs taken over the last few decades in its annual wildlife photographer of the year competition.

Now in its 53rd year, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition provides a global showcase of the very best nature photography. The competition is owned and run by the Natural History Museum, London.


These are the most memorable underwater images from the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. They have been specially selected for this unique book from the hundred of thousands of images received over the last 50 years. The collection gives us a glimpse into an often unseen world containing many strange and beguiling creatures. Each image is accompanied by a story from the photographer, explaining what the image means to them and how they were able to capture it. This portfolio reveals a spectacular panoply of life, which is as diverse and colourful as anything found on land.

Wildlife photographer of the year – Unforgettable Underwater Photography is published by the Natural History Museum and available on Amazon.
