The Annenberg Space for Photography will host an exhibition, The Power of Photography: National Geographic 125 Years. Organized in collaboration with National Geographic magazine, the exhibit celebrates the iconic publication’s 125 year anniversary.
“For 125 years now, National Geographic has been a place where art and insight and a deep cultural understanding come together – a place where we can be astonished and inspired by the world all around us...I’m proud to join with National Geographic in celebrating this simple principle: that we are all stewards of this remarkable planet,” says Wallis Annenberg, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of the Annenberg Foundation.
Mosaics of more than 400 images documenting the history of National Geographic photography from 1888 to the present time will adorn the walls. In addition, an extensive digital installation will showcase 500-plus images. Given the volume of photographs on the screens, and a format in which the images loop at different times throughout the galleries, the viewing experience will be unique to each visitor and each visit.
The Power of Photography: National Geographic 125 Years will run from October 26, 2013 – April 27, 2014 at the Annenberg Space for Photography.
