In memory: Lennart Nilsson

World-renowned photographer Lennart Nilsson passed away on 28 January 2017. Nilsson was best known for his book A Child is Born, which features ground-breaking images of the very start of life, quite revolutionary at the time the book was published in 1965. Nilsson also worked as a photojournalist, and struck up both a working relationship and friendship with Ingmar Bergman in 1960, when he photographed him during the production of The Devil’s Eye. Nilsson also captured many portraits of Bergman throughout the years, and a letter in which the two friends discuss this and many other things is kept in the Ingmar Bergman Archives. Lennart Nilsson was 94 years old at the time of his death.
