"As photographer Jason Fulford recently learned firsthand, mushrooms have a way of growing and spreading wherever they touch ground. It all started when a friend of Fulford's gave him a box, bought at a flea market, full of photos of mushrooms-modest snaps taken by an unknown but almost certainly amateur photographer, apparently as notes for mycological studies. These mushroom images stuck in Fulford's mind, and started to grow in his own work. The Mushroom Collector combines some of the original flea-market mushroom pictures with his own images and text by the artist about the project.
