Frans Lanting’s Into Africa project presents an enduring vision of the continent’s primeval natural heritage—and what is at stake in the 21st century.
It features some of the most celebrated landscapes on earth, from the sweeping vistas of the Serengeti Plains and the water wilderness of the Okavango Delta to the enchanting deserts of Namibia, the bewildering jungles of the Congo, and the otherworldly island of Madagascar.
During many journeys over the past three decades, Lanting has documented wild Africa and its some of its most iconic and endangered animals. His personal stories express the deep understanding and sense of mission that make his work stand out as a unique tribute to the continent’s wildlife and wild places.
This exhibition, Into Africa, was produced by the National Geographic Society with support from the World Wildlife Fund. It was launched at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., where it was on display for more than a year and was seen by more than three million visitors.
The book, Into Africa, is available in stores and online—or from us. We also produced a luxurious Collector’s Edition of the book, which is available only from our Studio.
Frans Lanting and Chris Eckstrom’s Into Africa stage presentation features images, videos, and stories, and may be booked as a stand-alone show or in connection with the exhibition.
