The exhibition reflects on the journey of the world as we know it, looking at man’s progression through technology, changes in society and the way we live, environmental concerns and scientific discoveries, and the historical events which have shaped the world we live in today.

The exhibition coincides with International Darwin Day and Darwin’s birthday on February 12th.

In association with the exhibition, there will be a series of activities open to all, including a Photo Safari and a Magnum Photos Talk. For further information visit,, and
