Further information:
"These photographs are evidence of what I know is missing, of what I have memory of but have forgotten; of what I thought I saw out of the corner of my eye.
In these images giant moths are nibbling away at the perfect mechanical reproduction that photography promises. They don't rely on the traditional borders of a photograph to tell them when to start and where to finish. They don't want to be a photograph; they would prefer to be marquettes for pieces of sculpture." Peter Lyssiotis
