Lennart Nilsson was first discovered in 1965 when he published 16 pages of his photographs of humans embryos in LIFE magazine. His passion for microscopes and cameras started at a young age, then the ambition evolved to show the world the beauty of the human fetus as it grows in the womb. In 1957, when he first attempted to take photos of a fetus, he couldn't publish them since they weren't good enough.
Later in life, Nilsson succeeded in getting precise shots with the help of a cystoscope - a medical instrument used to examine the inside of the urinary bladder. by attaching a camera with a tiny light to it, he managed to take for us pictures that depicted the beautiful and captivating process of the formation of life inside the female body.
here are the marvelous pictures which show how beautiful life can be if looked at from a different perspective.
