Imagine Exhibition’s newest installation opened to the public February 14 at 9:30 a.m.

Hosted by Imagine Exhibitions CEO & Founder Tom Zaller, guests were immersed in the captivating world of National Geographic and its 125-year-old history. Just as compelling as the photographs adorning the walls were the stories accompanying them, evoking inspiration, heartbreak, awe and self-awareness from guests.

Attendees learned the intriguing stories behind famous pictures such as Steve McCurry’s mysterious Afghan Girl, a lion braving a Kalahari Desert dust storm by Chris Johns, and William Albert Allard’s tear-jerking image of a Peruvian boy mourning his sheep carelessly wounded by a hit-and-run taxi driver.
