Photo exhibition from National Geographic magazine archive opened in Astana

A unique exhibition of photographs from the National Geographic magazine archives has opened in Astana. It is noteworthy that the renowned American geographical publication has a history of over a century. The exposition featuring the greatness of wild nature is presented through the lens of eminent photographers, including Michael ‘Nick’ Nichols, Steve Winter, Paul Nicklen, Beverly Joubert, and David Doubilet. Each work reveals a unique and distinctive perspective of photographer-explorers on the wild nature and its rich fauna. According to the organizers, the images also demonstrate the evolution of the art of photography, from photographic films to remote shooting and underwater technologies. Residents and guests of the capital can admire exclusive photo shots and discover new facets in the exploration of the animal world at a special hall of the Kazakh National Museum. The exhibition will run until February 25.

“The exhibition features nearly 70 photographs of various wild animals captured in their natural habitats. Each image reflects immense work of the photographers. They have to work in various conditions, giving each photograph its own story,” said Aibyn Shagalak, executive editor at the National Geographic magazine.
