Children from Horniman Primary School come to our Museum once a week for an after-school Museum Club.
Last term they created their own photography inspired by our European Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition.
The children wrote their own labels which explain why they chose the animal and how they decided to photograph it.
Their photographs show a talent for composition. A lot of time was taken to think about the characteristics of the animals they were photographing and how the animals act in their natural habitats.
Here are a few examples of these artistic photographs.
'Midsummer Night breeze!' by Maisie
A baby rabbit is called a kit, a female rabbit is called a doe and a male is called a buck. I chose this animal because I want people see what would have happened when the sun goes down. It makes a beautiful contrast with the mouse and the bird. The background makes the animals stand out , Maisie
'ΜΑΞΡΟ ΚΑΙ ΞΣΠΡΟ ΖΩΞΣ' (black and white life) by Sophia
I took this photo of a badger because of its large size and secretive way of living. The background shows the pattern of the badger's fur. Badgers are short-legged omnivores in the family mustelidae, which includes otters, polecats, weasels and wolverines, Sophia
'Criaturas que Cazan' (hunting creatures) by Rosa and Angel
These animals circle in a fight for survival. The stoat, a wonderfully deft animal, edges away from the looming buzzard. We angled it so the elegant bird seems to look disdainfully down upon the lonely stoat, Rosa and Angel
'Awesome Elster' (awesome magpie) by Lucian
I love the Magpie because he has a cute face. I think he has a serious expression. The feathers of a magpie are very soft. Its feet are very small. I angled it so it's looking you in the eye , Lucian
'The Bird with Blue' by Livvy
I was looking for an animal, then this one stood out like a shining star. I thought that it would look nice on a blue background. Blue jays are sometimes known to eat eggs or nestlings, and it is this practice that has tarnished their reputation , Livvy
'The Semi-Darkness' by Caity
I chose to photograph the mongoose because it is interesting how it looks like a meerkat. I like how pretty the fur is. I think the animal goes well with the background. I hope you like it too, Caity
We had the Museum Club's photographs specially printed and they are now on display in our Education Centre.
