Mariposas Nocturnas
by Emmet Gowin
"Mariposas Nocturnas, by legendary photographer Emmet Gowin (born 1941), is the type of book that we would want to have on our shelves forever. A catalog of photographs documenting visitations from nocturnal moths in Central and South America, it is an exceptionally beautiful record of the winged visitors. It is also a curated snapshot of the time and place - the specific forest, the phase of the moon, and this precarious moment in the history of the natural world. Gowin photographed the moths, 1,275 in all, alive and unposed. “I wanted to photograph them in a natural gesture and posture - completely unlike what you would see in a pinned specimen,” he says. “It’s beautiful the way they master gravity.You can often feel the alertness in the way they stand, in the way they hold their wings.” "
