The second installment of Phyllis Ma’s ‘Mushrooms & Friends’ expands on the photography of foraged and cultivated mushrooms in phantasmagoric settings.
Familiar gilled mushrooms are featured alongside spongy, stalkless and club-like fungi. The collection is then juxtaposed with visceral props – a sliced orange powdered with turmeric, purple daisies on green sugar, the veiny texture of a cabbage leaf – and transformed into otherworldly, Dr. Seussian assemblages.
