Na­tional Geo­graphic pho­tos go on dis­play

Stratford Press - - News -

An ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing the 50 great­est pho­to­graphs ever taken for Na­tional Geo­graphic is on in New Ply­mouth.

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til Oc­to­ber 28 at the tem­po­rary ex­hi­bi­tions gallery at Puke Ariki and show­cases some of the most en­gag­ing pho­to­graphs span­ning the mag­a­zine’s 130-year his­tory.

From Steve McCurry’s iconic Afghan Girl to Michael Ni­chols’ pho­to­graph of Jane Goodall and a chim­panzee, the ex­hi­bi­tion can­vases a wide range of top­ics.

Gallery-go­ers will have the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence a dif­fer­ent view on some of the pho­tos with the in­clu­sion of near frames which are the im­ages made in the field be­fore and af­ter the per­fect shot. The ex­hi­bi­tion also in­cludes videos with be­hindthe-scenes sto­ries and in­ter­views. Vis­i­tors will hear first-hand ac­counts from pho­tog­ra­phers of the places they travel to and the peo­ple they meet around the world.
