Ancient Trees: Woman Spends 14 Years Photographing World’s Oldest Trees

Beth Moon, a photographer based in San Francisco, has been searching for the world’s oldest trees for the past 14 years. She has traveled all around the globe to capture the most magnificent trees that grow in remote locations and look as old as the world itself.

“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.

Sixty of Beth Moon’s duotone photos were published in a book titled “Ancient Trees: Portraits Of Time”. Here you can have a sneak preview of the book, full of strangest and most magnificent trees ever.

On that one, i disagree about the black and white choice. Trees are magnificent in their colors, they express so much more of their life!

Black & white better highlights the textures, which is mostly what makes them interesting.

Go to http://www.bethmoon.com/TouchWood01.html, she has the names under the photos and then you can Google the locale.

The point of them being in black and white is to express their age. They are as old as time, so b&w gives them thus atmosphere. Big like!
