Laszlo Layton's Portfolio Natural History
"My Natural History series borrows most heavily from the old illuminated books on nature from the 18th and 19th centuries. Those scientific tomes were illustrated mostly with engravings and lithographs of drawings -— usually taken, not from nature, but from mounted specimens or written accounts of the animal species as interpreted by the artist. What these illustrations may have lacked in scientific accuracy they more than made up for in artistic expression."

"Although our modern natural history books are much more scientifically accurate, there is a certain romantic charm that I admire in the earlier illustrations that is usually lacking in the modern photographic representations. With this series I am attempting to recapture and distill the essence of those old natural history illustrations, but through the photographic medium."
