Spores: Magical Mushroom Photography
To see a mushroom is a kind of magic. It is embodied evidence of total serendipity, a beguiling conjunction of time and place, weather and circumstance. It is also evidence of the unseen, thriving life that surrounds us. In this 208-page photo book, more than 90 artists capture mushrooms in settings both natural and supernatural—growing on the forest floor, popping up in our homes, gleaming in a fluorescent glow, and arranged like alien flowers. Each image invites readers to look closely, revealing new dimensions of the mushroom’s magic.
