Disturbed Ecologies

looking for matsutake – mushroom series

2/116 photographs, c-type prints, various dimensions. Japan 2018

The photos really did make me laugh.  Thank you!!

However, in these terrifying and confusing times, we must look more carefully and respectfully at all the life around us. Elke Marhöfer’s „mushroom series“ shows us how. Following in her footsteps, I find myself more ready to notice patches of color amongst the weeds and strange and lovely creatures springing from decay. In responds, I submit a photograph of lichens titled „Tree of life 17“ (2019)
