Unique footage from conception to birth

Since childhood, the microscope and the camera were the main Hobbies of a brilliant photographer Lennart Nilsson, who wanted to show the world the beauty of the human body at the cellular level. Pictures of the human fetus, Nilsson managed to get back in 1957, but they were not spectacular enough to show them to the public.

To obtain the most accurate and colourful pictures helped him a cystoscope is a medical instrument with which to examine the bladder from within. Nilsson attached the camera and light guide and made thousands of pictures of baby's life inside the uterus.

So the skilled hands of Lennart Nilsson has created a miracle: revealed to the world the mystery of the origin of human life.
