A Child is Born

by Lennart Nilsson
4.6 out of 5
Author Lennart Nilsson
Publisher Jonathan Cape
Synopsis In 1965 Lennart Nilsson published images from inside the human uterus, the first photographs of prenatal life. The book that was to follow, A Child is Born, stunned the world - offering an unprecedented glimpse at the unseen world within our bodies, and our own beginnings. Using high-definition ultrasound technique, scanning electron and light microscopes, and advanced fibre optics Lennart Nilsson documents the miracle of human reproduction: the egg travelling down the fallopian tube; the sperm racing to meet it; the moment of fertilization; the very first cell division; the tiny embryo attaching to the uterine wall; the growth of eyes, ears, fingers and toes; and finally the moment of delivery itself - providing an astonishing glimpse of the first moments of life. In this, the fully revised fifth edition, A Child is Born is redefined for a new age. With a completely new accompanying text, the images are rendered in astonishing detail utilising revolutionary new photographic technology, with the photographs themselves the dominant driving force of the narrative.
