Books:  In The Womb

Based on National Geographic’s acclaimed television program, this is a fascinating perspective for anyone captivated by the miracle of life.

Imagine being able to observe a child’s delicate features as they evolve over the course of a pregnancy, or witness the complex behaviour of new human life in utero. Now we can, thanks to the advent of innovative 3-D and 4-D imaging technologies which provide a powerful diagnostic tool for doctors and cast vivid light on our earliest development.

Each spread features a central image and information about that particular stage as well as brief commentary explaining what we know and how we know it. For example, at 24 weeks we watch a fetus open and close her eyes, display facial expressions resembling a grimace and a frown, and stick out her tongue (no one has yet established exactly why). And during the last trimester, we learn, she experiences REM sleep and can hear loud noises through the fluids of her mother’s body—a first hint of the world that awaits outside the womb.

From Conception to Birth: A Life unfolds

The milestones of pregnancy, which before could only be described, can now be witnessed: the heart’s first beats, the appearance of colour in the eyes, the emergence of toes and teeth, the brain and nervous system directing development, the first movement of tiny arms and legs, the first indications of gender, the wonderful symbiosis of mother and child, the symphony of the body’s system coming into being and working in concert.

The books tracks the development of a baby from the moment of conception, through the explosively complex early stages of development, and the amazing stages of growth as the baby is nurtured by the mother, ending with the joy of birth.

All this is made possible by Alexander Tsiaras’ use of his virtual camera studio which enables the photographer to view a human body or any part of  it individually, scan it, enlarge it, rotate it, adjust its transparency so that we can view inside a living being, and light it from any angle.
