Photographs of the Extraordinary
On view October 5, 2018 through January 6, 2019
From a tiny hummingbird in flight to an enormous swirling storm cloud, photographs of some of the world’s most astounding phenomena are on view in the National Geographic exhibition Rarely Seen.
Inspired by the book National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary, the exhibition features 50 striking images made by some of the world’s finest photographers of places, events, and natural occurrences seldom seen by human eyes. The photographs capture unbelievable moments, natural wonders, and extraordinary objects from the far reaches of the globe.
The stunning photographs that comprise the exhibition are divided into categories: Phenomena, Life, Places, Objects, and Moments. Among the images that visitors will explore are depictions of thousands of king penguins congregating in the Antarctic; a mysterious temple complex in Cambodia; the amazing Hundred Dragons Elevator in China’s Hunan Province; and a hummingbird in flight facing off against a tiny green snake.
Rarely Seen is organized and traveled by the National Geographic Society.
