About this Exhibition

From the Moeraki Boulders in New Zealand to the Pope taking a selfie in Vatican City. In this exhibition of visual wonders, National Geographic reveals a world very few have the chance to see for themselves.

Shot by some of the world’s finest photographers, “Rarely Seen” features striking images of places, events, natural phenomena, and man-made heirlooms seldom seen by human eyes. It’s all here: a green-crowned brilliant hummingbird looking eye to eye with a pit viper, the Rayong Dam, an underwater park in Austria, ice caves, a supercell storm cloud, and a royal white tiger. With an introduction by veteran National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez, whose work has taken him from the Peruvian Andes to the deepest caves of Papua New Guinea, this exhibition captures once-in-a-lifetime moments, natural wonders, and rarely seen objects from across the globe.
