"Year after year the editors, writers, and photographers of National Geographic magazine bring readers captivating coverage of "the world and all that's in it." 2011 was no exception. A handful of carefully chosen images help shape each article. Yet, thousands of worthy photographs never make the cut. Selected from images shot on assignment for 29 articles, the photographs in this exhibition offer a glimpse at the richness of what is left behind after editing is complete. Take a peek behind the scenes to learn about the merits of the photograph, why it caught the editor's eye, or how the photographer got the shot."
