Whoever came up with the phrase ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ certainly knew the power of visual storytelling.
Sometimes a picture can be powerful enough to be inspirational material all by itself. Photographers have made us see the amazing secrets of nature and now we bring you one of the most special moments of life, its creation.
Swedish photographer, Lennart Nilsson (1922 – 2017) was also a science enthusiast whose passion for photography led him into doing something amazing using a cystoscope.
In 1965, LIFE magazine published some of his amazing photos on the process of how a baby is conceived.
