Photographer Beth Moon has spent the last 14 years travelling the world so that she can photograph the earth’s most magnificent oldest trees. Her dedication has certainly paid off.
“Standing as the earth’s largest and oldest living monuments, I believe these symbolic trees will take on a greater significance, especially at a time when our focus is directed at finding better ways to live with the environment,” writes Moon in her artist statement.
Her quest is not only impressive but also symbolic of many incredible ideologies of our world. Her work is in her book. “Ancient Trees: Portraits Of Time.”
Here is a sample of some of her work.
