Frans Lanting snippet
“No one turns animals into art more completely than Frans Lanting,” writes The New Yorker magazine.
Frans Lanting
Frans Lanting is one of the great nature photographers of our time. His influential work appears in books, magazines, and exhibitions around the world. For more than two decades he has documented wildlife and our relationship with nature in environments from the Amazon to Antarctica. He portrays wild creatures as ambassadors for the preservation of complete ecosystems, and his publications have increased worldwide awareness of endangered ecological treasures across the earth.
Lanting’s work has been commissioned frequently by National Geographic, where he is a Photographer-in-Residence. His assignments have ranged from a search for the bonobos of central Africa to a unique circumnavigation by sailboat of South Georgia Island in the sub Antarctic. Images from his year-long odyssey to assess global biodiversity at the turn of the millennium filled the Feb 1999 issue of National Geographic.
