National Geographic photos go on display
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.
