As photographer Jason Fulford recently learned firsthand, mushrooms have a way of growing and spreading wherever they touch ground. Fulford’s attachment to fungi began when a friend of his gave him a box, found at a flea market, full of photos of mushrooms. These images were unassuming and taken by an unknown but almost certainly amateur photographer, supposedly as notes for some mycological studies. Fulford's art photographs, aside from his well-known book Dancing Pictures, are usually of staid, quasi-mute objects, for example a smashed Dorito chip overrun with ants, two bronzed doorknobs spooning, the blank back of a street sign. The Mushroom Collector combines some of the original flea market mushroom pictures with his own images and text by the artist about the project.
