NG Live Unpublished.jpg

Beyond the Story: National Geographic Unpublished showcases nearly 50 never-before-seen photographs taken by 15 of National Geographic’s best photographers over the course of last year, photos left on the “editing room floor.” Topics range from Asia’s disappearing glaciers to contemporary South Africa to the fight to save the Jordan River to the struggles of women in Afghanistan. Four of the exhibition’s photographers — Lynsey Addario, Jim Richardson, Fritz Hoffmann and Lynn Johnson — will discuss their work at a special National Geographic Live event tonight, Tuesday, Jan. 11, at 7:30 p.m. Exhibition runs through June 12. National Geographic Society, 1145 17th St. NW. Tickets are $18 for the National Geographic Live event at the Society’s Grosvenor Auditorium, 1600 M St. NW. Call 202-857-7700 or visit
