Jim des Rivieres - Moth Images

Ottawa, Canada 132 Sales On Etsy since 2009

5 out of 5 stars
(23)

Announcement   This shop sells moth prints, note cards, and posters from Canadian photographer Jim des Rivieres. Winged Tapestries: Moths at Large, an exhibition featuring my large-format moth prints produced by the Canadian Museum of Nature has toured museums in Ottawa, Edmonton, Rimouski, Saint John, and New York City.

Since 2002 I've been working on a series of images of moths and butterflies local to the Ottawa area, photographed with a hi-res flatbed scanner.

You can see my full moth portfolio here:
http://ottawa.moths.ca

I do all my own printing in my home studio. I'm currently using Epson 3800 (17") and 9800 (44") printers, Epson Ultrachome K3 pigment inks, and Epson fine art media. Between these printers I can do anything up to 40x60".

I try to give my prints a remarkable richness and depth that's difficult to appreciate without actually seeing a print. My fine art prints are so 3-dimensional that people instinctively want to touch the print to feel what the moth is like. They really are that life-like.

I will be more than happy to provide prints or any of my moth and butterfly images in specific sizes. If you see anything you like, just convo me and I'll create a listing.

I recently moved from the Midwest to Asheville, NC and just encountered my first Luna moth. I requested a life size version of the moth and was accommodated. This is a beautiful print of the lovely creature and looks just as pictured. Print was nicely packaged and arrived timely.
