His provocative images represent a personal vision of the emerald worlds that shelter the ultimate expression of life on personal vision of the emerald worlds that shelter the ultimate expression of life on earth. Through images and words, Lanting takes readers on a dazzling journey into a realm of bewildering complexity, where nothing is the way it first appears. In photographs that range from spectacular gatherings of rainbow-colored macaws to the misty exudations of a forest at dawn, he evokes the luscious sensuality and intricate natural order of the tropics. His stories chronicle a series of rugged expeditions into remote tropical wilderness areas, from the otherwordly island continent of Madagascar to the soaring mountains of Borneo, to capture the mesmerising beauty and eerie fascination of nature at its most fantastic.
