PPS08: Frans Lanting - Life: A Journey Through Time

7 minutes, 24 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Seven years ago, world renowned nature photographer Frans Lanting took a photograph of horseshoe crabs coming out of the ocean on the east coast of the USA and remarked to himself that the scene he had just captured probably looked the same as it did millions and millions of years ago. He then wondered whether there were other examples of life on earth that could be captured today as they were when they first appeared on the planet...

Thus began the Life: A Journey Through Time project incorporating books, multimedia orchestral performances (composed by Philip Glass), a traveling photographic exhibition and interactive web site: LifeThroughTime.com

Frans spoke about his experiences working on the Life: A Journey Through Time project as part of his keynote address at the 2008 Pro Photo Summit.
