Join acclaimed photographer Beth Moon, author of Ancient Skies, Ancient Trees, as she delves into her artistic process and the experience of traveling around the world to photograph these natural relics. It is only in the rarest and clearest of nights that we can look up at the sky to find a sprinkling of twinkling stars.

Surrounded by the bright lights of humanity, the infinite majesty of the night sky can only be truly enjoyed by those devoted enough to seek it. Critically-acclaimed photographer Beth Moon’s own appreciation of cosmos inspired her quest, spanning from continent to continent, to some of the darkest corners of world, where constellations and nebulas shine more brightly. Moon’s Ancient Skies, Ancient Trees captures the boundless beauty of trees under the night sky, seemingly undisturbed by humans. Discover her relentless journey—undeterred by knee-high mud, windstorms, and distance—to reveal the rich hues of the night that are often too faint to be seen by the naked eye.

Beth Moon is a photographer based in New York who has gained international recognition for her large-scale, richly-toned platinum prints. Her prints are held in numerous public and private collections and have appeared in more than sixty solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Italy, England, France, Israel, Brazil, Dubai, Singapore, and Canada, receiving widespread critical acclaim. With this new book, she explores color photography for the first time.
