Summer 2010: Midnight Visions by Jim des Rivieres


Jim des Rivieres collects and photographs moths from his local area around Ottawa. Instead of photographing them directly, he has developed a special technique using a flatbed scanner. Jim is passionate about moths and their contribution to biodiversity. The 27 moth species depicted in this show are a tiny cross-section of the macromoth species found in the photographer’s immediate locale of Ottawa, Canada. More information at
