Photographs can paint a picture that a thousand words can not describe. They can capture a memory which will last a lifetime and inspire others to do things they never thought possible. The National Geographic Magazine has been inspiring and educating others about the ways of the world for 125 years now, and the Annenburg Space for Photography is proud to present an exhibit which specifically highlights all of the fantastic work of over 130 National Geographic photographers.
The Power of Photography will be a mosaic of over 400 images taken between 1888 and the present day, all of which are there to document the history of the National Geographic. It will highlight the dedication and hard work puts into exploring, documenting, and preserving nature and the world as we know it. Additionally, there will be a digital display of 500 stunning images including portraits, landscapes, and iconic images throughout several different genres and themes.
As if this isn’t enough, there will also be an original documentary film and several behind the scenes videos for you to browse through, in which you will get to know six of the most renowned photographers who have worked for National Geographic. Through the interviews and commentary, you can discover how they manage to turn a picture into something which inspires the viewer and discovers the unseen and spectacular parts of the world.
The best part is that entry is totally free right up until April 27, 2014. So whether you are a budding photographer or just someone who can appreciate the beauty and passion that goes into the art of photography, visit the National Geographic exhibit for a worthwhile experience! The exhibit is closed Monday and Tuesday but open Wednesday to Sunday, 11am-6pm, and validated parking is available if you contact the center directly.
