125 years of National Geographic photos

For most of us young ones, the National Geographic Society means weeknights spent in front of the TV watching Locked Up Abroad, Mudcats, or Doomsday Preppers. But many of us don’t know that National Geographic spans 125 years of exploration, discovery, and learning. One of their great contributions is their innovations in photographic technology that brought us amazing, breath taking, and historically-relevant images.

To commemorate their 125th anniversary, National Geographic will publish “The Photography Issue,” containing their most compelling and most influential photos ever. They will also be launching Proof, a photo blog, and Your Shot, a photo-sharing platform where hotographers can send images to National Geographic.
