Lennart Nilsson Obleia (Laomedea) geniculata, 1958 “Life in the Sea”
In 1958, Swedish magazine Se published a series of photographs portraying life under the sea, taken at the west coast of Sweden. The series later laid the foundation for the book “Life in the sea”, and in a sense it was also the foundation for “A child is born”, since it was here Nilsson really learned to master the art of photographing in the water, and where he also started to develop a scientific approach. The book was an instant sensation.
“Photographing life in the sea in the 1950s formed the basis of everything I later achieved about fetal development and the human body. When I took these pictures, I learned to work methodically and scientifically, and that was when I began collaborating with scientists and research institutions. It all started with me studying plankton one spring morning”, Nilsson later said.
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.
