The Mushroom Collector.

The Mushroom Collector. By Jason Fulford. Edited by Lorenzo de Rita. The Soon Institute, 2010. 196 pp., illustrated throughout, 9,5x12,5". Images from here.

'The Mushroom Collector' is a book by photographer Jason Fulford. It came to be when "a friend of Fulford’s gave him a stack of anonymous photographs of mushrooms, found at a flea market.

The mushroom images got stuck in Fulford’s mind, like a bad song sometimes does, and they started to grow in his own work.

The Mushroom Collector combines some of the original flea-market pictures with his own images and text about the project."

A limited edition (signed and numbered edition of 50, with each edition accompanied by a 8x10" Analog C-print) is available, as well as individual prints (available from the Soon Institute).
