I invite you to the opening of the main photo exhibition of the 18th Włodzimierz Puchalski International Nature Film Festival, which will be held on September 22 at 5:00 p.m. at the Eugeniusz Haneman Photography Gallery of the Łódź Photographic Society located at 102 Piotrkowska Street in Łódź. The exhibition "Biodiversity as an opportunity for the Earth" consists of 30 photographs enlarged to the format 50x70 cm by 10 invited nature photographers. Among the names of the awarded authors, there are also my and three signed works.

"There are pictures of animals that symbolise the success of protecting and preserving biodiversity. Such are undoubtedly bisons, elks and beavers. We have those that are currently endangered and require good decisions and careful protection. It is undoubtedly both the capercaillie and the black grouse, but also the hoopoe, threatened with destruction of trees in the fields. There are two charming wild boars, so much needed by the environment, and yet officially doomed...

There are some photos missing at the exhibition. The photos made by a man who was always there and now "stubbornly stays disappeared". Tomek Ogrodowczyk was one of the first to confirm his participation. He did not have time to send the photos. The authors unanimously decided to dedicate this year's exhibition to him, the Great Absent. To one of the greatest connoisseurs and propagators of biodiversity and beauty of Polish nature.

We cordially invite you to the Eugeniusz Haneman Gallery of the Łódź Photographic Society for the festival exhibition. Biodiversity really is Earth's chance - and man's only chance for survival."
