About the Author

Beth Moon, a photographer based in San Francisco, makes her exhibition prints exclusively with the platinum/palladium process, which affords the greatest possible permanence and tonal range. Moon's work has been published widely in magazines, and she is represented by galleries in the United States, Italy, Israel, Brazil, and Dubai.

Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle Holiday Gift Guide Selection "A project with weight and lasting beauty...Ancient Trees provides the kind of thorough and thoughtful portrait that each of these majestic long-lived survivors deserves." --Christian Science Monitor "[Moon] creates magical images that in their blacks and whites, silvers and grays, capture the marvel of arboreal forms and textures ... [a] jewel of a book." --Booklist, Starred Review "Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time is well named. One cannot look at Beth Moon's images of gnarled, overgrown trees and not feel the intrinsic gravity of time." --Printers Row Journal, Chicago Tribune Featured in the Wall Street Journal's Weekend "Exhibit" spotlight "Trees are notoriously hard to photograph, but Moon captures their individuality with reverent portrayals...these are lavish, awe-inspiring pictures...Crossing with ease between realms of natural history and art, this will appeal to all with even the mildest horticultural or photographic interests." --Library Journal "Beth Moon's stunning images capture the power and mystery of the world's remaining ancient trees. These hoary forest sentinels are among the oldest living things on the planet, and it is desperately important that we do all in our power to ensure their survival. I want my grandchildren--and theirs--to know the wonder of such trees in life and not only from photographs of things long gone. Beth's portraits will surely inspire many to help those working to save these magnificent trees." --Dr. Jane Goodall
