earth3New York, Apr 22, (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a bid to mark the Earth Day, around forty of the best images of nature is all set to be displayed in New York on Christie’s first ‘Green Auction’ on Thursday. The news that some of the pictures of the collection of total 40 photos would also be available for sale has come as a pleasant surprise for nature lovers who surely would not mind shelling out even a whopping amount in order to own one of the spectacular images.

It has been revealed that the pictures were brought together in an online gallery after they were selected by the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) members. The main points which were taken into consideration while choosing the pictures were aesthetics, the unique quality about the images, historical significance as well as the contribution that it made in terms of conservation efforts. The auction is likely to generate widespread attention due to the sheer exquisiteness of the images depicting nature which includes pictures of dancing polar bears, underwater shots of water lilies, sea lions and an image of a thresher shark held captive in a fishing net while an image of a group of elephants beside a lake in twilight has also been included.

While talking about the images that have been included in the top 40 collection, Justin Black who is associated with ILCP has pointed out that it was indeed a very difficult task to select just 40 pictures for the collection. In the meanwhile, Christina Mittermeier, the president of the organization highlighted that photography plays a major role in the preservation of landscapes and creatures by bringing into focus even the most remote parts of the Earth.
