A launch event and free exhibition will take place in London next week to mark the release of Remembering Great Apes – a stunning book full of powerful images of apes taken by over 70 of the world’s top wildlife photographers.
Both events will be hosted by the book’s collaborators to help raise vital funds for international wildlife charity Born Free and follows the success of Remembering Elephants in 2016 and Remembering Rhinos in 2017, which raised an astonishing £320,000 for the charity. All profits from the sale of Remembering Great Apes will go towards Born Free’s great ape conservation work in Africa and Asia.
The Remembering Great Apes photo exhibition will take place at La Galleria, Pall Mall from Monday 15th to Saturday 27th October and offers an unmissable opportunity for the public to view the exquisite imagery of gorillas, orangutans, chimpanzees and bonobos. Limited edition prints and copies of the book will also be available to purchase at the show.
A further fundraising event will take place on Thursday 18th October at the prestigious Royal Geographic Society, with a conservation talk and auction hosted by Born Free’s consultant, Ian Redmond OBE. Remembering Wildlife founder and photographer Margot Raggett will compere the event, with many of the photographers whose work features in Remembering Great Apes at the event to sign copies of their work and books themselves.
