Stunning images of the world’s rainforests will soon be on show at Kew Gardens as part of a campaign against tropical deforestation spearheaded by Prince Charles.

The photographs, by the winner of this year’s Prince’s Rainforest Project Award, Daniel Beltrá, show the effects of climate change on the rainforests of the Amazon, Democratic Republic of Congo and Indonesia.

“Photographic images can tell a compelling story about the truth of the situation, and the truth is that if we lose the fight against tropical deforestation, then we lose the fight against climate change,” the Prince of Wales said at the Sony World Photography Awards (sponsors of the Prince’s Rainforest Project) earlier this year.

The exhibition opens at Kew Gardens in West London from the 3rd of October and runs until the 6th December, with subsequent showings in Paris and Berlin.
