"In Focus: National Geographic Greatest Portraits," an exhibition consisting of 56 striking color and black-and-white photographs, will open at the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum on April 25 and remain on view through June 21, 2009. The exhibition has never before been shown in the Pacific Northwest.  Created by the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History and National Geographic, the exhibition is organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES).

The exhibition highlights the work of some of National Geographic's most celebrated photographers. National Geographic photographers have taken more pictures of people than of any other subject, indicating "a photographer's desire to connect with people—to capture something consequential about another person," wrote National Geographic magazine associate editor Chris Johns.  The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) has been sharing the wealth of Smithsonian collections and research programs with millions of people outside Washington, D.C., for more than 50 years. SITES connects Americans to their shared cultural heritage through a wide range of exhibitions about art, science and history, which are shown wherever people live, work and play.
