Nine National Geographic contemporary masters answer the question: Where or what is heaven on earth? From the exuberance of a coming-of-age ritual to the boldness of a wild creature’s gaze to the pride in catching the Big Fish, these images offer an exquisite sense of place as they reveal an intimate state of mind. Exhibited photographers are: William Albert Allard, Jodi Cobb, David Doubilet, Michael Nichols, Paul Nicklen, Randy Olson, Joel Sartore, Beverly Joubert & Michael Yamashita.
