50 Greatest Photos: National Geographic

 

 

50 Greatest Photography of National Geographic
17th August to 27th October 2013
ArtScience Museum
$15 SGD or $13 with a Singapore EP

This showcase of Nat Geo’s stunning 125 year history has to be THE definition of inspiration. Their ‘Behind the photograph’ placards tell the incredible tales that you’d never normally get to hear… A journalists who camped out in the African wilderness for days (with his 4 yr old daughter!) to get that one glimpse of a Tanzanian lioness. Another who drove miles to rescue the stranded Iranian lady (above in blue) from childbirth in the desert.  There are stories of good fortune, spectacular timing, fluke, gut feeling or sometimes pure passion; like the team who returned to Afghanistan 30 years later to re-shoot their iconic green eyed beauty.

    This blog is nothing short of inspiring – absolutely love it.

    I have been traveling through South East Asia this year and am currently living in Vietnam teaching English. It’s been great but I’m actually leaving Vietnam in a few weeks for more travels – first to China and then on to Australia. If you have a second you can check out/follow my blog here:

    Look forward to reading through lots of posts on here, it’s brilliant.
