Exhibition: National Geographic Into Africa - The Photography of Frans Lanting


  • National Museum of Natural History 10th St. and Constitution Ave., NW Washington, DC

 “Into Africa” takes visitors on a grand tour through the wonders of African landscapes as seen through Frans Lanting’s lens. His images and stories create an enduring vision of the continent and demonstrate what is at stake for its wildlife and wild places.

More than 60 of Lanting’s images were selected for display within a 4,250-square-foot exhibition hall. Stunning videos shot and produced by Lanting’s wife, videographer and partner, Chris Eckstrom, accompany the photographs and share untold stories of exploration from their fieldwork in Africa. The videos provide in-depth focal stories about chimpanzees in Senegal and the parade of animals that come to a water hole in Namibia.

The exhibition is on view through summer 2016.
