Lennart Nilsson Fertilized egg cell, 1965 “A child is born”
Lennart Nilsson achieved international fame in 1965, when his photographs of the beginning of human life appeared on the cover and sixteen pages of Life magazine, in an article titled “Drama of Life Before Birth”. These photographs also made up the backbone of the groundbreaking book ”A child is born”, published in 1965.
In the 1970s, photographs from the series formed part of an interstellar message to other life forms when they were sent into space on the unmanned Voyager I and Voyager II spacecraft.
The poster is printed on Galerie Art Matt, 200g, a high-coated matt paper with non-reflective surface and optimal image reproduction, with FSC-certification.
