Eye to Eye with Life

Frans Lanting

The Exhibition

This exhibition features highlights from some of his many projects, including Eye to Eye, intimate portraits of animals that reveal the kinship of all life on earth; Into Africa, an enduring vision of the African continent and what is at stake for its natural heritage; and LIFE, A Journey Through Time, a lyrical interpretation of the history of life on earth from the Big Bang to the present. Lanting’s work reveals the unique personal aesthetic he brings to photography and the startling new perspective on wildlife and wild places his images provoke. “No photographer turns animals into art more completely than Frans Lanting,” writes The New Yorker. His fine art prints are represented in many public and private collections

The Photographer

FRANS LANTING has been hailed as one of the great nature photographers of our time. His influential work appears in books, magazines, and exhibitions around the world. Born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, he earned a master’s degree in economics then moved to the United States to study environmental planning. Soon after, he began photographing the natural world–and never turned back. For three decades he has documented wildlife from the Amazon to Antarctica to promote understanding about the Earth and its natural history through images that convey a passion for nature and a sense of wonder about our living planet.
