From July 12 to August 14, 2013, the Freundeskreis Willy-Brandt-Haus and National Geographic Germany, will be presenting a selection of fascinating photographs covering the 125 years of the legendary magazine – from its founding in 1888 till today. On display at the Willy-Brandt-Haus in Berlin, the exhibition includes 55 outstanding pictures, expeditions and reports taken from the magazine of the National Geographic Society – one of the largest non-profit, scientific organizations in the world.
Visitors to the exhibition will be taken on a unique journey through time, visiting cultures and great events around the world. Among the images on display is National Geographic's best known cover picture: the moving portrait of a young Afghan woman refugee, photographed by Steve McCurry. National Geographic photographer Carsten Peter takes viewers on a journey through bizarre crystal caves in Mexico, while Emory Kristof takes them down to the wreck of the Titanic. The jubilee exhibition also includes photographs by Jodi Cobb, David Doubilet, Annie Griffiths, Paul Nicklen, Joanna Pinneo, Norbert Rosing, Chris Johns and many more.
