axes in Plot3D

If I plot a function in 3D I get a realistic projection of the x,y and z
axes. The following command will give me a box where the z-axes is almost
vertical up, the y axes comes a bit out of the paper and the x-axes comes a
lot out of the paper.

SphericalPlot3D[SphericalHarmonicY[1, -1, th, ph]
Conjugate[SphericalHarmonicY[1, -1, th,ph]],{th,0,\[Pi]},{ph,0,

I am searching for an option where I can put the y and z axes in the paper
plane and make the x-axes come on an angle out of the paper. This will not
give me a realistic perspective, but it will leave the y-z plane

Hope I am clear. If anybody knows how to do so I would like to know.
