Ancient Trees (Hardcover) Book

SKU ID #909248
Photographer Beth Moon spent fourteen years travelling the world to take photographs of large, ancient, and unusual trees. They are presented in this book. The pictures are in a consistent style: black and white, with a slightly soft focus, lens and angle choices to capture the tree as a whole while retaining the greatest possible sense of closeness, and a palette of soft warm gray tones. They are influenced by the Ansel Adams style of stark landscape magnificence, with an added mistiness. The trees themselves are remarkable at a level that will interest readers not usually interested in trees. In places like Britain and Cambodia, they may contain ancient human buildings. Some, in places like the North American deserts and Socotra, have shapes most people have never seen. The book is divided into two sections. The first contains full-page images. The second shows the images as thumbnails, with paragraphs by the photographer describing the location and the tree. The book's introduction is by a senior staffer at the New York Botanic Garden. A variety of readers interested in natural history, photography, art, or the environment will enjoy the book
