“50 Greatest Photographs by National Geographic” showcases some of the most compelling imagery published in the history of the magazine.
This exhibit will transport visitors behind the lens of some of National Geographic’s most engaging images. From Steve McCurry’s unforgettable Afghan girl, to Nick Nichols’s iconic photograph of Jane Goodall and a chimpanzee, to Thomas Abercrombie’s never-before-seen view of Mecca, the exhibition features 50 of the magazine’s most remembered and celebrated photographs from its more than 120-year history.
In addition to seeing the photographs as they appeared in the magazine, visitors to the exhibition will learn the stories behind the photos, and more about the photographers themselves. For some images, visitors will be able to see the “near frames” taken by the photographer: the sequence of images made in the field before and after the perfect shot. The exhibition is based on the popular iPad app of the same name, released by National Geographic in 2011 and featured by Apple as an iPad “App of the Week.”
The exhibition is accompanied by the iPad app with behind-the-scenes stories, videos, daily updates from Your Shot—a forum of user-submitted photography—and much more.
