Moths at Large
The hidden beauty of moths explodes in full.
Winged Tapestries presents 45 impressive, large-format prints of moths by photographer Jim des Rivières.
To create these fascinating, larger-than-life images, des Rivières scans each moth specimen at a very high resolution. The results are spectacular: huge images in which unexpected colours and intricate patterns reveal themselves.
Visitors describe the exhibition as unforgettable.
