This publication reissues a beloved photobook classic – acknowledged as such by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger in the third volume of The Photobook: A History – that has been out of print since the hardcover edition was published in 2010. As photographer Jason Fulford (born 1973) 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, found at a flea market, full of photos of mushrooms – unassuming pictures taken by an unknown but almost certainly amateur photographer, apparently as notes for some mycological studies.
