  • Background: Shop windows at Selfridges are featuring ‘A Return to Nature’ -- a joint outdoor show by photographers Marco Kesseler and Cameron Bensley.
  • Description: The exhibition celebrates the beauty and fragility of the natural world, our relationship with it, and sparks a dialogue around the impacts of climate change. Shot in locations such as Devon and the Midlands, UK, Kessler's series chart the different stages of the agricultural calendar, documenting the cycle of planting, growing, harvesting and lying fallow. Bensley's photos show imposing natural landscapes under threat, such glaciers shielded by thermal sheeting.
  • Impact: ‘A Return to Nature’ is both a celebration of the natural world and a plea for its conservation. The exhibition offers city dwellers a chance to embrace the great outdoors while the city’s busiest street remains fallow (due to the COVID-19 restrictions).
