Books: Emmet Gowin's Stunning Celebration of Moths

By David Schonauer   Wednesday September 13, 2017

With his kaleidoscopic project “Mariposas Nocturnas,” the noted American photographer Emmet Gowin “does for the moths of Central and South America what the influential German duo Bernd and Hilla Becher once did for the water towers of Western Europe, transforming an apparently lowly subject into riveting art,” notes The New Yorker. The work, made over the past 15 years in a variety of countries, is collected in the new book Mariposas Nocturnas: Moths of Central and South America, A Study in Beauty and Diversity.
