How the human life arises

Как зарождается человеческая жизнь

Photographer Lennart Nilsson spent 10 years of his life on removing the evolution of the embryo from conception to birth!

Nilsson received international fame in 1965, when the magazine LIFE published 16 pages of photographs of a human embryo. These photos were immediately reproduced also in Stern, Paris Match, The Sunday Times and other magazines, bringing to the photographer Lennart Nilsson world fame

Since childhood, the microscope and camera have been Nilsson's main hobbies, which wanted to show the world the beauty of the human body at the cellular level. Photos of the human embryo Nilsson managed to get back in 1957, but they were not yet effective enough to show them to the general public.

To get the most accurate and colorful pictures he was helped by a cystoscope - a medical device that examines the bladder from the inside. Nilsson attached a camera and a light guide to it and took thousands of pictures of the baby's life inside the womb.

Thus, the skillful hands of Lennart Nilsson created a miracle: they showed the whole world the mystery of the birth of human life.
