A new exhibition featuring the work of celebrated nature photographer Frans Lanting aims to tell the natural history of Earth -- from the first stirrings of life to the incredible biodiversity seen on our planet today.
"My mission was to create images of nature -- from volcanoes to tree frogs -- that could evoke a sense of time and origins," Lanting said in a written statement. "I wanted to apply both new scientific ideas to my subjects and new photographic concepts to my images. My approach has been that of a storyteller who draws on characters for the sake of telling a larger tale."
More than 70 images by Lanting will be featured. Scroll down for a sneak peek at six of the images. Enjoy!
