50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic Review
by on June 3, 2011
This app is like having one of those books of beautiful photography on your coffee table, but at a much lower cost. It contains 50 of National Geographic’s best shots from around the world, showcasing both natural wonders and humanity.
There really is something here for everyone, from long exposures on board a plane coming in to land to a shot of the Titanic wreck and an eye-opening image of a shark caught in a fishing net. What makes it all the more powerful are the explanations of the context in which the photo was taken, from the mouths of the photographers themselves. In some cases, you even get additional images from the photoshoot or related videos.
As well as browsing the images by thumbnail, a tappable world map lets you explore them based on where they were taken. There are also some fascinating browsable timelines of key photography landmarks over the years.
While some images are more striking than others, it’s nothing if not thought-provoking.
