50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic showcases some of National Geographic's most compelling photographs. From Steve McCurry's unforgettable Afghan girl to Nick Nichols' iconic image of Jane Goodall and chimpanzee to Thomas Abercrombie's never-before-seen view of Mecca, the exhibition includes some of National Geographic magazine's most-remembered and celebrated photographs from its more-than-120-year history. In addition to seeing the photographs as they appeared in the magazine, visitors to the exhibition will learn the stories behind the photos and more about the photographers themselves. For some images, visitors will be able to see the "near frames" taken by the photographer: the sequence of images made in the field before and after the perfect shot. The exhibition is based on the popular iPad app released by National Geographic in 2011 and featured by iTunes as an iPad "App of the Week." Devices featuring the app will be available in the gallery for visitors to experience. Exhibit on tour through National Geographic Traveling Exhibit Service.
