About this book

A spectacular oversize photo book celebrating Africa's most majestic trees-which are now facing an unprecedented ecological threat

Baobabs are one of Africa's natural wonders: they can live more than 2,000 years, and their massive, water-storing trunks can grow to more than one hundred feet in circumference. They serve as a renewable source of food, fiber, and fuel, as well as a focus of spiritual life. But now, suddenly, the largest baobabs are dying off, literally collapsing under their own weight. Scientists believe these ancient giants are being dehydrated by drought and higher temperatures, likely the result of climate change.

Photographer Beth Moon, already responsible for some of the most indelible images of Africa's oldest and largest baobabs, has undertaken a new photographic pilgrimage to bear witness to this environmental catastrophe and document the baobabs that still survive. In this oversize volume, Moon presents breathtaking new duotone tree portraits of the baobabs of Madagascar, Botswana, South Africa, and Senegal. She recounts her eventful journey to visit these monumental trees in a moving diaristic text studded with colour travel photos.

This book also includes an essay by Adrian Patrut, leader of a research team that has studied Africa's largest baobabs and alerted the world to the threat these majestic trees are facing.

Media reviews

"Documents the beautiful and distinctive-looking baobabs [...] with platinum and hand-colored prints with an incredible level of detail."
Atlas Obscura

"Baobab is photographer Beth Moon's tribute to the magnificent, threatened trees upon which cultures and ecosystems depend [...] In the face of such monumental losses, the photographs in Baobab amount to an 'act of defiance.'"
