moth4

The Starn Twins most recent series involves the study of the nocturnal and ephemeral nature of moths and why theses creatures are attracted to light. The works are typical Starn style in that they are certainly unconventional and continue to use photography as a mixed medium. These series of photographs are created by coating handmade mulberry paper with gelatin emulsion and are then toned in sulpher. Although I have yet to see these images up close and personal these photographs are described as being as soft and as brittle as the wings of the moths they depict.
