Photography is an art which can leave you awestruck. Photographers have made us see things we never thought is possible. And that’s what a 91 years old photographer, Lennart Nilsson did. Being a science enthusiast and having a passion for photographer made Lennart do something which is simply beautiful. Using a cystoscope, Lennart has taken photographs how every stage of how a child is born. The photos were initially published by LIFE in the year 1965.
