Nat Geo Archives: Unpublished Documentary Photos of a Bygone World
National Geographic is synonymous with some of the world’s finest photography, and that is only what they publish. Buried deep with its archives lie forgotten, unpublished photographs of life across the world, spanning almost a century. Images so fascinating that they make one wonder how did these not make the cut?
Well, they have now.
Found is Nat Geo’s photo stream on Tumblr, launched in 2013 to mark the iconic Yellow Window’s 125th birthday.
As a part of our ongoing series of curations from Nat Geo’s archives of hundreds of unpublished images, Quint Lens presents Part II of the same: some of the best documentary photography over the last century that captures the many shades of the world, its people and the places of a bygone time.
