‘National Geographic show’ – photo exhibition


This new show in Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province, marks the first time that over 100 breathtaki­ng moments that have been documented by National Geographic magazine have ever been debuted in the city.

The show displays photos covering a variety of themes. For example, the migration of birds captured by Klaus Nigge and rock paintings created by Native Americans in photos by Rich Reid.

Also, photograph­er Carsten Peter’s sensationa­l photos that show a huge tornado in the US and also one of the world’s largest active volcanoes, located in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Such photos on one hand show how “vulnerable” human beings are compared to the power and unpredicta­bly of nature, and on the other hand show the great spirit of exploratio­n that allows human beings to co-exist and understand nature.

Photos exhibited at the Wenzhou show cover various subjects such as the environmen­t, geography and culture.

Though they have been taken by different photograph­ers, they all take improvemen­t of humanity as their central theme.
