Journey Into Africa through the lens of National Geographic photographer Frans Lanting, whose images have created an enduring vision of Africa's diverse landscapes and wildlife. The Into Africa: Blank Boxed Notecards showcase four iconic images from the landmark Smithsonian exhibit, Into Africa, which features more than thirty years of fieldwork by Frans Lanting, one of the world's most renowned nature photographers. The exhibit was produced as a partnership with the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, the National Geographic Society, and the World Wildlife Fund. During three decades of fieldwork and assignments for National Geographic, Lanting encountered otherworldly vistas and captured moments of intimacy with some of the world's most endangered animals. As seen here through these stunning photographic notecards, Lanting creates an enduring vision of Africa and demonstrates what is at stake for its wildlife and wild places. This boxed set features twenty folded cards in five sets of four images. Each image is displayed beautifully in full-color on the front cover with a blank interior for notes and a lined envelope to send the card in--everything you need to share a little slice of the magnificent Into Africa exhibit with all of your friends and loved ones.
