Experience some of the most captivating photographs of the animal kingdom.
Visitors will witness some of the most surprising animal behavior in the new National Geographic exhibition, 50 Greatest Wildlife Photographs. The very best wildlife pictures from the pages of National Geographic magazine have been chosen to be displayed in this exhibition, which opens at The Nat on June 29.
Curated by renowned nature picture editor, Kathy Moran, this exhibition is a celebratory look at wildlife with images taken by National Geographic’s most iconic photographers, including Michael “Nick” Nichols, Steve Winter, Paul Nicklen, Beverly Joubert, David Doubilet, and more. Showcasing the evolution of photography, the images convey how innovations such as camera traps, remote imaging, and underwater technology have granted photographers access to wildlife in their natural habitat.
For 130 years National Geographic has utilized its storytelling expertise to connect its readers to the great outdoors. The organization has pioneered the art of wildlife photography ever since the first image to appear—a reindeer in 1903—in National Geographic magazine. The start of the exhibition displays such humble beginnings of wildlife photography and details how these photographers paved the way for future generations of visual storytellers.
Each photograph on display was taken in a natural environment; none of the images were taken in permanent captivity or through the use of baiting techniques.
50 Greatest Wildlife Photographs is located in the photography gallery on Level 4 and is free for members and included with general admission.
