KEEN ON BOOKS

He may have made his name as one of Na­tional

Ge­o­graphic’s most pub­lished pho­tog­ra­phers, but Frans Lant­ing has also pro­duced a huge coll ec­tion of suc­cess­ful books…

How many as­sign­ments have you done for Na­tional-Ge­o­graphic?

I think I’ve pub­lished be­tween 30 and 35 sto­ries in the magazine and done a num­ber of other as­sign­ments for the So­ci­ety, so it adds up to quite a bit of work over­all. But I’ve also al­ways been in­ter­ested in do­ing dif­fer­ent things across dif­fer­ent me­dia plat­forms (as we call them now).

I’ve been keen on books for many years, be­cause they have a longer life than a magazine, which is here one month and be­comes old pa­per the next. We’ve been very care­ful with how we ap­proach books. We’re work­ing on the next one right now: Into-Africa (to be pub­lished in the au­tumn) is based on a big ex­hi­bi­tion I pro­duced for the Smith­so­nian. It’s an over­view of the work I’ve done in Africa over the years.
