An exhibition of Indian wildlife photographer Subhankar Banerjee's highly acclaimed snapshots of Alaska has been bumped from a prime spot near the rotunda of Washington dc's National Museum of Natural History to "somewhere down in a basement". Banerjee's supporters blame the us energy lobby, including Alaskan politicians, for "downgrading" the exhibition. Pro-environment us activists commissioned the photographs in their battle against the Bush administration's plans to exploit Alaska for oil drilling. Banerjee spent almost two years in the Arctic region on his shoot.
