Frans Lanting on Life

I just heard Frans Lanting speak at National Geographic. He gave a quick tour of his recent project – Life: A Journey Through Time. The goal of the project was to take pictures of the past that can be found in today’s world. It was an ambitious project that took Frans seven years to complete. The photos are simply staggering.

One of the Life project’s branches is Life Music. Philip Glass wrote a score of a multimedia production of the project. Watching a bit of it made me think of Koyaanisqatsi. I haven’t watched that in a while… now an IMAX/HD version of that would be worth checking out.
