Welcome to Nature's Best Photography

This Fall, millions of visitors to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History will witness first-hand the vibrant transformation of images made in the field to large-format prints displayed in one of the most respected destinations on Earth. Two separate NBP Exhibitions will fill nearly 7,000 square feet of space to deliver extraordinary views of the natural world. The first opens on Sept. 3, 2014 and is titled "Wilderness Forever" to celebrate 50 years of protecting America's wild places. The second, open on Oct. 24, 2014, showcases winners of the annual Windland Smith Rice International Awards. 

"In a museum filled with fascinating displays, I am always amazed by the impact the large-format prints have on the public. These exhibitions bring visitors face to face with animals and landscapes they may have never seen," says Awards Director, Stephen Freligh. "Choosing Epson as our Printing and Paper Partner was easy after listening to the pros in the field and specialists in the prepress industry." The award-winning photographers agree:
