Kathleen’s spectacular image of a young male gorilla was taken on a trip to Uganda and captured the imagination of the Award Jury.
“The photographer has perfectly captured the magic of the moment when the gorilla forgets her presence to concentrate on crossing the river in the heart of the sumptuous Ugandan forest.”
Jean-Michel Krief (Jury Member)
