One of the great nature photographers of our time, Frans Lanting’s images of nature and wildlife have been published in National Geographic, Audubon, and TIME as well as exhibitions around the world. His most recent work, LIFE: A Journey Through Time, is a multimedia event that combines the music of Philip Glass with incredible photographs that document the history of the big bang to life on present day Earth. A work seven years in the making, Lanting consulted with evolutionary scientists, astrobiologists, geologists and paleontologists to create photos that would be a true representation of past worlds.
Lanting’s work has helped focus the awareness of the public on Earth’s increasing ecological problems. In 2001 HRH Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands inducted Lanting as a Knight in the Royal Order of the Golden Ark, the country’s highest conservation honor.
