Nathan Benn served on the National Geographic photographic staff from 1972 into 1991. Three hundred of his photographs were published in National Geographic Magazine, and hundreds more in numerous books. This exhibition features Benn’s selection of images from this period capturing the physical, cultural, and aesthetic spirit of the Mississippi River. This exhibition is part of the Museum’s on-going Mississippi River Exhibition Series that explores a range of artists’ expressions inspired by the River.
