FOUND: National Geographic’s Tumblr


My childhood was spent waiting on our copy of National Geographic to arrive in the mail. Hours were spent happily discovering a world far beyond the rural farm I grew up on; every issue was saved and they were in constant use. It was on these pages that I discovered the pyramids of Egypt and decided I wanted to become an archeologist (archeology was my major in college until a conversation in my second year with a beloved professor who told me how hard it was to get funding to go on digs and do the work she really wanted to do outside of the classroom. I changed my major shortly thereafter to Art History.). And though all these years later the internet and access to information has made it easier to get a glimpse of people and places around the globe, National Geographic still holds its allure to me–which is why I was so happy to learn about FOUND. From Nat Geo, “FOUND is a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of our 125th anniversary, we are showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public.” It is very easy to idle away a lot of time looking through the photos here!
