#Snapped: Experience ‘How the child is born’ in photographs!
Somehow, this is the biggest question which everyone at some point of life thinks about! We all do wonder that “How a child is born?”
From contraception to birth, this guy has been recording the growth of the human embryo. Photographer Lennart Nilsson has spent 10 years of his life doing this!
Nilsson managed to snap these priceless shots with the help of a cystoscope (a medical instrument used to examine the inside of the urinary bladder) He attached the camera with a tiny light and snapped the life of the embryo in its mother’s womb.
Here’s how it goes!
