Photographic display in shop windows
In a small village in the south of England, there is a group of people who feel a strong passion for butterflies and moths. This passion is not based on their beauty, or their colours, not even on their movements, but on everything as a whole. They know their habits, their Latin names. They collect books on butterflies and moths, watch them and list them. They even cultivate plants which attract them so as to have them nearer. They can’t understand how some people enjoy hunting these creatures.
Butterfly Days is a love story between mankind and butterflies.
- Bego Antón (Bilbao, Bizkaia, 1983) studied journalism in the University of the Basque Country and is now devoted to documentary photography. A great part of her photographic plans explores the in-love – out-of-love relationship between mankind and nature. She is also especially interested in small groups which are found strange by part of the society. Her work can be seen on www.begoanton.com
