Since 1994 Doug and Mike Starn have created art that refers to light and the sun. They have examined the symbolism of the sun in various different times and cultures, for humanity has always been at the mercy of it. From the summer of 1996 onward, the twin brothers photographed moths and other insects that were attracted by the light on the veranda of Doug's house.

A sumptuously large and exquisitely produced book, Attracted to Light showcases the Starns' extensive conceptual portrait series of the nocturnal moths' mysterious journey and the seeming gravitational force that light has over them, "captured" in photographs and filmic video footage.
