Even though the long, slow “death of print” resulted in it being sold to Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox global media empire, National Geographic
is regarded as the source for thought-provoking, eye-opening and heartbreaking images from around the globe. Whether it’s wildlife, war, day-to-day life of human beings around the globe, or the silent majesty of nature’s most impressive landscapes, National Geographic
sends photographers out to shoot it. This exhibit collects over 100 photographs from 11 photographers in a display of what makes National Geographic
great. Diane Cook and Len Jenshel’s urban and remote landscapes abut Maggie Steber’s black-and-white portraits of people in their beds, while Beverly Joubert snaps intimate portraits of wild leopards. It’s a whirlwind tour of the globe through these women’s eyes, and a reminder of why we fell in love with those golden-bordered travelogues in the first place.
