National Geographic Photos Coming to Exhibit

 

Photographs from around the world will be highlighted in a National Geographic exhibit coming to The Venetian in February.

Beginning February 14, Imagine Exhibitions Gallery at The Venetian will host the 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic in Las Vegas, showcasing images including Steve McCurry’s “Afghan Girl,” Nick Nichols’ image of Jane Goodall and chimpanzee, and Thomas Abercrombie’s never-before-seen view of Mecca.

50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic will run for a limited engagement and will be open daily from 9:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. (last ticket sold at 6 p.m.) Tickets will cost $16; students with a valid ID, Nevada residents, military and seniors get in for $13. Children 12 and under receive free admission when accompanied by a paying adult. Taxes and fees not included.

In addition to seeing the photographs as they appeared in the magazine, visitors to 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic can 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.
