If you ever considered moths to be brown and dull, let this Pantone prove otherwise. Displaying an equally bright array of colours as their butterfly brethren, moths are our nocturnal rainbows.

30% of the original unframed price from each sale will be donated to Butterfly Conservation via Work for Good to promote butterfly and moth conservation projects. This is a limited edition of 500.

    Photography

    Moths were attracted to a Skinner light-box with 2x 20V actinic bulbs overnight and released the following morning. Locations included Essex, Dorset and Argyll & Bute. All individual photographs were taken between April-October 2022 using a Sony RX10 IV camera (20.1 megapixel sensor) with the following range of settings: ISO<1000, F2.4-4 aperture and 1/100-1/2000 shutter speed. In most cases, a flash was not required. Photos were subsequently cropped and collated in Photoshop. Note that in most cases, the legs and antennae of the moths have been digitally erased to aid collation.

    Artist

    James Bashford is a neurology doctor, who devotes much of his spare time to the photography of moths, butterflies and birds. Passionate about the intimate relationships between the Earth, biodiversity and humans, his artwork attempts to raise awareness of the climate crisis. Each piece comes with a signed certificate of authenticity.
