Awesome Photography Exhibit at National Geographic


Back in October ’08 I suggested you check out a photography exhibit at National Geographic. I’m sure there have been lots of great exhibits in the interim but I just checked out the Kodachrome “American Tourist in Europe” photography exhibit. And it was equally awesome. Lots of great shots from the 50s and 60s. Well worth checking out! The National Geographic Society is located at 1600 M Street, NW (but you sorta have to walk through a courtyard to get to the exhibit).

There were also some new sculptures that I hadn’t seen before.


More photos after the jump.

  • thanks for this! i loved the exhibit in 2008 but Nat’l Geographic is no longer on one of my footpaths. will hustle over there.

  • this is one of my favorite museums, but im a little wary of those big bugs :/

  • The Kodachrome exhibit is great! Go see it!

  • I’m spending quality time in the NGS building these days and can say that the exhibit is one of the highlights of my day. The images are gorgeous, nostalgic and evoke an innocence that is difficult to imagine in these trying times.
