About the Author

Doug and Mike Starn, identical twins born in 1961, achieved recognition as part of a group of artists in the 1980s making conceptual use of photography. Working collaboratively in the territory between photography, video, installation, sculpture, and painting, the Starns have had numerous solo exhibitions in galleries and museums internationally, with further retrospectives in Japan, Europe, and Australia. The recipients of numerous awards, including two National Endowment for the Arts Grants (1987 and 1995), The International Center for Photography Infinity Award for Fine Art Photography, and the Eastman Kodak Fine Art Photography Award, the Starns' works are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris; the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia; and The Yokohama Museum of Art, Japan; among many others. The Starns live and work in New York City.

Format: Hardcover
The starn twins have always broadened the confines of the photographic world. A must have if you are interested in non-traditional photography. Graphic images of insects up close and made to look like the fragile beings that they are.

This book is great. I like the subject matter, the execution and, presentation. I won't go on and on, but these images of moths are both delicate and beautiful. Enjoy

I love this book. As a painter, I am inspired by Doug Starn's use of light in photographs of his subjects.
