Fruiting bodies: the art of fungi
Friday 03 September 2010
A series of captivating pictures of mushrooms and other fungi went on show for the first time today in Brighton.
The work, by award winning photographer Julia Claxton, is displayed at The Restaurant at Drakes Hotel as part of the Brighton & Hove Food Festival.
For the exhibition, ‘Fruiting Bodies,’ Claxton was inspired by “the richness and diversity of form in the fruiting bodies of fungi and the sense of the hidden revealed by their sudden appearance.”
She said: “The myths and mystery that traditionally surround these fruiting bodies are echoed in this apprehension of an ever unfolding universe, a microcosm that reflects the macrocosm.”
