As a teenager in the sub-tropical Far North of New Zealand I used to wander around in my father’s bush block and find beautiful fungi. I fell in love with their beauty and would return with notebook and coloured pencils to try and record what I saw. I especially loved the “filmy” toadstools and the coral fungi.
By viewing this wonderful blog post from Flow Art Station I was introduced to the fungi photography of Steve Axford from the Northern Rivers area of NSW, Australia. He manages to capture the extreme beauty and variety of these fascinating subjects that are generally only visible for such a fleeting period.
I hope you enjoy this post as much as I did!
