LIFE: A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME { 91 images } Created 9 Nov 2011

LIFE: A Journey Through Time is a lyrical interpretation of the history of life on Earth by master photographer Frans Lanting. Frans describes the project's origins in the Introduction to the book, Life: A Journey Through Time: One spring evening seven years ago I stood at the tide line of an estuary in the eastern United States watching something that took me far back in time. I saw horseshoe crabs come out of the water to spawn, an ancient ritual that goes back hundreds of millions of years. That experience made me realize that I could see the past in the present. And I wondered whether it might be possible to tell the story of life on Earth from its earliest beginnings to its present diversity by capturing images that evoke nature through time.
