The internationally successful photographer focused on transportation and people is fascinated by landscapes and trees. She presents these giants of nature in various impressive series. Her new work with the title ‘The Joshua Trees’ led her to the Mojave desert in California. “Even though the Joshua Tree isn’t actually a tree – for me it is the perfect addition to my tree series,” says Anke.
The Joshua Tree is an important part of the regional ecosystem and provides nutrients and protection for several animal species. The plants, which resemble cacti and belong to the genus Yucca, can reach a height of up to 18 meters and can live up to 900 years. In the last rays of light from the setting sun, the plants exude their very own magic in Anke’s photos.
