Details

“Pascal Maitre‘s beautiful photographs contained in this book illustrate how fascinating these unique and mythical trees are.“ Jacques Rocher, Honorary President of the Yves Rocher Foundation – Institut de France

The enormous trunk is fire-resistant, and the leaves are used to make medicine. The fruit called ‘monkey bread’ is edible and rich in vitamin C. The tree is able to store thousands of litres of water. Older trees are often hollow, offering shelter for humans and animals alike. Some of the trees are 1600 years old. BAOBAB is the work of one of the most extraordinary photographers of our times.
