Nat Geo “Found” Project

30 Forgotten National Geographic Photos That Have Never Been Published Before


Celebrating cultures around the world and vivid moments of our past, the project National Geographic Found curates historical images and breathes new life into them. Started in 2013 to celebrate National Geographic’s 125th anniversary, the project retrieves images from the Nat Geo archives, and showcases moments that have been lost and are just now being rediscovered

Some of these photos were never published, and others were run in the magazine many years ago and then forgotten. Each carefully selected photograph represents an ageless story of a moment in history, frozen in time. We have chosen some of our favourites, but if you want to see more amazing, forgotten shots, check out the National Geographic Found Tumblr page.
