The National Maritime Museum has announced its 'Exposure: Lives at Sea' exhibition, which will showcase incredible documentary photography exploring life at sea today. Opening on 20 November, 2020, this exhibition will focus on "isolation and camaraderie, science and survival, climate change and conservation – the lived experience of men and women at sea". 

Showcasing the work of six seafarers and researchers, this documentary photography has been designed to show large-scale panoramic works against smaller and more intimate pieces. With locations ranging from the reefs of Mexico to the desolate landscapes of Antartica, the 'Exposure: Lives at Sea' exhibition will show the different ways people interact with the sea.
