January 18, 2018
Where do babies come from? Well, if you are looking for a photographic analysis of how a baby is conceived and how it develops in the uterus, then you will be amazed by Lennart Nilsson's popular body of work. The photographer dedicated 10 years to recording the development and growth of the human embryo until the time a child is born.
In 1965, LIFE magazine brought Nilsson into the spotlight when it published 16 pages of his pictures of human embryos. Other publications like 'The Sunday Times' and 'Stern' reproduced Nilsson's work, giving it more exposure.
