Bay Area photographer Beth Moon Capture the Dwindling Population of Madagascar’s Ancient Baobab Trees.
Photographer Beth Moon capture the majesty of the world’s most ancient trees, and we are so happy she did.
Moon writes about her visit:
Astonishment and horror set in as Tsitakakoike comes into view. Half of the tree has collapsed; a portion of the sides and back of the trunk remain. Gigantic branches, larger than most trees, lay in disarray at the base of the trunk. The entire spectacle is about the size of a football field.
Moon captured dozens of photos, which are on view now as part of an online exhibition through photo-eye Gallery and compiled in a recently released book available on Bookshop. You can see more from her travels on Instagram.
