Historic Firsts for National Geographic

From a pioneering ascent of Everest to advancements in aerial, underwater, and space photography, the National Geographic Society has been exploring the world for 125 years.

NGfirsts01National Geographic funded Robert E. Peary’s 1909 attempt to reach the North Pole. Although he claimed that his team made it, questions remain about whether they actually reached the correct geographic location.

NGfirsts02Robert Peary’s 1909 Arctic expedition likely came within ten miles of the North Pole—closer than any explorers before them.

NGS Picture ID:122155NGfirsts04This image of a flower garden in Ghent, Belgium, published in 1914, was the magazine’s first natural (not hand-tinted) color photograph.

The photo was taken by Harry Burnett at Cal Tech in Pasadena where Albert Einstein was teaching. Einstein saw the puppet perform at the Teato Torito and was quite amused. He reached into his jacket’s breast pocket, pulled out a letter and crumpled it up. Speaking in German, he said, “The puppet wasn’t fat enough!” He laughed and stuffed the crumpled letter up under the smock to give the puppet a fatter belly.”

MOTION in Air 2

Tim, shot the dancers (choreographed by Nathan Kim) at their studio, while Mike created the virtual sculptures cgi, and cleverly combined the elements in Photoshop.

Keeping the same premise as the original concept, Mike made each shape unique based on the dancer’s personality, style, and movements in the air. This time more dramatic lighting and darker tones were used to better match with Tim’s patented look.”
