50 Greatest Photographs
“50 Greatest Photographs” showcases many of the most compelling imagery published in the history of the magazine.
This exhibition will transport visitors behind the lens of some of National Geographic’s most engaging images. From Steve McCurry’s unforgettable Afghan girl, to Michael “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 almost 130-year history.
In addition to seeing the photographs as they appeared in the magazine, exhibition visitors 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 accompanied by videos with behind-the-scenes stories and interviews with the photographers.
50 Photographs, with fully designed panels, back-printed on thick plexi (36”x44.5” and 36”x52”) including approx. 250 word captions and behind-the-image stories from the photographers. Some include near frames.
8 Videos: interviews with photographers, which can be played separately or together
