Our take

Beth Moon's Ancient Trees is this month's bonus book that adds stunning visuals to the narratives in this selection. Beth Moon is a U.S. photographer who has travelled the world to capture portraits of our most stunning trees. "I cannot imagine a better way to commemorate the lives of the world's most dramatic trees, many of which are in danger of destruction, than by exhibiting their portraits."
In this large, beautiful book of about 30x30 cm, there are 60 photographs, each with an introduction by the photographer. Most of them are analog and have been taken with a medium format camera. The negatives have been scanned to then produce high-quality platinum prints. This is a special printing process where fine crystals of platinum are embedded into the paper giving a 3D look to the pictures. Due to the properties of platinum, such prints can last for thousands of years. The choice of printing process and paper make this book an art object.

Publisher's description

Beth Moon’s fourteen-year quest to photograph ancient trees has taken her across the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Some of her subjects grow in isolation, on remote mountainsides, private estates, or nature preserves; others maintain a proud, though often precarious, existence in the midst of civilization. All, however, share a mysterious beauty perfected by age and the power to connect us to a sense of time and nature much greater than ourselves. It is this beauty, and this power, that Moon captures in her remarkable photographs.

Praise and awards

Beth Moon’s majestic photographs of ancient trees will make you feel very, very small. – The Huffington Post

“Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time” is well named. One cannot look at Beth Moon’s images of gnarled, over-grown trees and not feel the intrinsic gravity of time. Moon’s photographs are almost sculptural in the way they record light as it’s filtered through branches, absorbed by dense, massive trunks. – The Chicago Tribune

Beth Moon’s stunning images capture the power and mystery of the world’s remaining ancient trees. … Beth’s portraits will surely inspire many to help those working to save these magnificent trees. — Dr. Jane Goodall
