Early Trees: Beth Moon’s 14-Year Quest to Photograph the World’s Most Proud Trees
Criss crossing the world with stops on nearly every continent, San Francisco-based photographer Beth Moon spent the last 14 years seeking out a number of the biggest, rarest, and oldest trees on Earth to get along with her camera. Moon develops her exhibit prints with a platinum/palladium procedure, an incredibly labor intensive and uncommon practice resulting in prints with enormous tonal range which are long-lasting enough to equal the longitivity of her subjects, possibly lasting tens of thousands of years. Moon’s accumulated work of 60 duotone prints were recently printed in a brand new novel titled Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time. From Abbeville Press:
