National Geographic has been known to bring us some of the best photographs in the world. They even throw in the most memorable stories behind every photograph. For their 125 years in the business, they share with us the most amazing unpublished photos in their collection.
Found is a collection of National Geographic photographs throughout the years that are only now being opened to the public. It is a peek inside their colossal photography archives that aim to do nothing but showcase the world’s most amazing stories about culture, life, nature and people. Their Tumblr is like a daily dose of awe-inspiring imagery that only National Geographic and their photographers can deliver.
The Found collection is like an open storybook that is only now being unveiled, piece by piece for the public to see. Many of the photos have lost their original date and the location where it was shot and leave just as much to the imagination the beauty they show in the prints. Nat Geo has amassed such a great collection that can only serve to inspire and astonish onlookers.

Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
The New Petzval Lens 85 continues to captivate the hearts of many photographers from its debut a couple of years back.
