Numinous and magical, the black-and-white photographs of Beth Moon celebrate nature and our relationship to it as a primary elemental experience. Moon is one of a handful of American photographers using nineteenth-century printing processes, which greatly amplify the spirit of enchantment that permeates her work. Between Earth and Sky presents five major series of works produced since 1999: Portraits of Time, which portrays ancient and legendary trees from around the world; Thy Kingdom Come, which explores animistic and totemic beliefs connecting humankind and the animal kingdom; Odin’s Cove, the story of a pair of mated ravens living in the wild; The Savage Garden, which looks at the compelling, sinister beauty of carnivorous plants; and Augurs and Soothsayers, a series of portrait-style photographs of exotic chickens. This volume is Moon’s first monograph. Raised in Wisconsin, she lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
