125 years of National Geographic: Stunning photography since 1888

From Steve McCurry's 'Afghan Girl' to a lion sleeping in a Ugandan tree, the National Geographic Magazine is responsible for some of the world's most memorable and beautiful images. This month, the magazine celebrates its 125th year and has collected stunning examples of photojournalism in the special October issue of the magazine. Unseen, vintage photographs from the publication's history are also on display alongside contemporary work at the Beetles and Huxley gallery, London, until October 19.
