Planet earth, home sweet home
In the year 2000, world-renowned wildlife photographer Frans
Lanting set out on a personal journey to photograph the
evolution of life on earth. He made pilgrimages to true time
capsules like a remote lagoon in Western Australia, spent
time in research collections photographing forms of
microscopic life, and even found ways to create visual
parallels between the growth of organs in the human body and
the patterns seen on the surface of the earth. The resulting
volume is a glorious picture book of planet earth depicting
the amazing biodiversity that surrounds us all. Lanting’s
true gift lies beyond his technical mastery: it is his eye
for geometry in the beautiful chaos of nature that allows
him to show us the world as it has never been seen before.
From crabs to jellyfish, diatoms to vast geological
formations, jungles to flowers, monkeys to human embryos,
LIFE is a testament to the magical beauty of life in all its
forms and is Lanting’s most remarkable achievement to date.
