Dutch photographer and World Wide Fund ambassador Frans Lanting has spent his career capturing the beauty of the natural world—dwindling puffin colonies in Iceland, giant tortoises in the Galápagos, African elephants in Botswana. But he also harbors a deeper concern for the plight of the planet and its species. As part of WeTransfer’s Union of Concerned Photographers, a project that uses the power of photography to underline the urgency of environmental causes, we spoke to Frans about his creative process and passion for the conservation of the world’s forests.
