ArtBeat: “Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary” Opens at Berkshire Museum [Berkshire on Stage]
The National Geographic exhibition Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary opens at the Berkshire Museum on Friday (October 5), offering visitors an exhibition of visual wonders revealing a world that few ever have a chance to witness. Rarely Seen is organized and traveled by National Geographic Society. Rarely Seen is generously sponsored by Greylock Federal Credit Union.
The exhibition is inspired by the book “National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary.” It features 50 striking images made by some of the world’s finest photographers of places, events, natural phenomena and man-made heirlooms seldom seen by human eyes. With an introduction by National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez, whose work has taken him from the Peruvian Andes to the deepest caves of Papua New Guinea, this exhibition captures unbelievable moments, natural wonders and extraordinary objects from the far reaches of the globe. The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, January 6, 2019.
