50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic


19 September – 28 October 2018
Temporary Exhibitions Gallery, Puke Ariki Museum


50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic showcases some of the most engaging photographs spanning the magazine’s 130-year history. From Steve McCurry’s iconic Afghan Girl to Michael “Nick” Nichols’s photograph of Jane Goodall and a chimpanzee, this exhibition will captivate and transport visitors of all ages.

Experience a different view on some of the photos with the inclusion of the ‘near frames’. These are the images made in the field before and after the perfect shot. The exhibition also includes videos with behind-the-scenes stories and interviews. Visitors will hear first-hand accounts from photographers of the places they travel to, and the remarkable people they meet around the world.
