National Geographic Photo Ark




Photo Ark, the most visited National Geographic exhibition throughout the world, is now in Braga with over 80 photos, from August 13th until January 12 2022. Discover the mission of the renowned photographer Joel Sartore: to photograph the 12,000 animal species that live in captivity and create an unprecedented archive of global biodiversity.

With a selection of some of his most iconic portraits, some of them photographed in Portugal, this is an opportunity to see some of the animal species with whom we share the Planet in a unique way– many of them are at risk of extinction and others already extinct. The art of Joel Sartore brings us a different perspective that has the ability to humanize each species and remind us of its importance.
