Photographer Spends 14 Years Taking Portraits Of Some Of The World's Most Ancient Trees

Diply 6 Mar 2017

Beth Moon is a photographer who has spent a great deal of her career capturing stunning portraits of the world's oldest trees.

In her artist statement, she says, "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, celebrating the wonders of nature that have survived throughout the centuries. By feeling a larger sense of time, developing a relationship with the natural world, we carry that awareness with us as it becomes a part of who we are. I cannot imagine a better way to commemorate the lives of the world’s most dramatic trees, many which are in danger of destruction, than by exhibiting their portraits."

You can really feel this passion in her photos. Let's take a look!
