50 Greatest Photographs Of National Geographic Exhibition to Open in Las Vegas

On February 14, 2013, Imagine Exhibitions Gallery at The Venetian Las Vegas will welcome 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic to Las Vegas. The traveling exhibition showcases some of National Geographic’s most-remembered and celebrated photographs from its 125-year-old history, such as Steve McCurry ‘s unforgettable “Afghan Girl,” Nick Nichols ‘ iconic image of Jane Goodall and chimpanzee, and Thomas Abercrombie ‘s never-before-seen view of Mecca. Imagine Exhibitions Gallery was previously home to Da Vinci – The Genius, which recently concluded its limited engagement.

In addition to seeing the photographs as they appeared in the magazine, visitors to 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic 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. Additionally, documentary videos
throughout the exhibition tell the stories behind these iconic photographs and the photographers who shot them.
