    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.





    “I expected this leopard seal to flee with her catch, a live penguin chick, but she dropped it on my camera,” says Paul Nicklen, who shot this photo in Antarctica, 2005. Since these aggressive mammals eat whatever they find in the variable ice pack, scientists track their diets to gauge changes caused by global warming. (Paul Nicklen/National Geographic)





    Floating on dreams and whispers, girls from a West Bank village cool off in the salt-laden waters of the Dead Sea. With its main tributary, the Jordan, at less than a tenth of its former volume, the inland sea has dropped some 70 feet since 1978. Shot in the West Bank, Palestine, in 2009. (Paolo Pellegrin/National Geographic)





    A diver and a southern right whale, Auckland Islands, New Zealand, 2007. (Brian J Skerry/ National Geographic/ Beetles and Huxley)





    A school of barracuda surrounds a naturalist, Bismark Sea of New Hanover Island, Bismark Archipelago, Papua New Guinea, 1987. (David Doubliet/ National Geographic/ Beetles and Huxley)





    Salmon fishing in Brooks Falls, Katmai National Park, Alaska, 1999.





    A lion climbs a tree to sleep, in Uganda's Queen Elizabeth Park, 2011.





    Sunlight streaming through Antelope Canyon, Page, Arizona, 2011.





    Bird hunters, Indus River, Mohenjo Daro, Pakistan, 2000.





    Elly's Ford hillside in the mist, Rappahannock river, Virginia, USA, 1999.





    Under the black clouds of burning oil fields during the Gulf War, camels forage desperately for shrubs and water in southern Kuwait, 1991. Front-line photographs of regions ravaged by human strife can also illuminate war's environmental cost.





    A woman leading her sheep past Lamayuru Gompa, Ladakh, India, 1978.





    A cowgirl dropped a nickel in a parking meter to hitch her pony. When this photo was taken in 1939, El Paso, Texas, was still a highly horse-conscious town with many cattle-ranch residents. (Luis Marden/ National Geographic)





    Steve McCurry's iconic photograph of a young Afghan girl in a Pakistan refugee camp appeared on the cover of National Geographic magazine's June 1985 issue and became the most famous cover image in the magazine's history. (Steve McCurry/ National Geographic)




    Indian women, India, circa 1921. (Maynard Owen Williams/ National Geographic/ Beetles and Huxley)




    A boy juggler, Kashing, Chekiang Province, China, circa 1929. This and the following images can be seen at the Beetles and Huxley gallery, London.





    Young Asaro mudmen at the annual tribal sing-sing at Garoka, Melansia, 2000.





    The October 2013 issue of The National Geographic Magazine brings together some of the best and most memorable images in the publication's history. (National Geographic)
