Beth Moon Returns To Photograph The World’s Oldest Trees
Beth Moon is a photographer that spends a lot of time researching to find intriguing trees in southern Africa, South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia. Usually she takes her photographs during the day, but now for her new project, Diamond Nights, Moon spends her days trekking outside through miles of isolated and unmarked terrain. When she finds a great vantage point, she marks the spot with a pile of rocks which she finds later at night by flashlight. The resulting night images are quite magical.
“Our relationship to the wild has always played an important role in my work. This series was inspired by two fascinating, scientific studies that connect tree growth with celestial movement and astral cycles,” Beth Moon, explained. The images are named after the constellations behind them. Moon hopes these images will stand as a visual representation of the Earth’s connection with the sky.
