The Magical World Of Mushrooms In Macro Photography By Steve Axford

Mushrooms, the natural recyclers of our forests, are almost as diverse on their own as the entire animal kingdom. Nature photography usually focuses on other larger objects, so we often miss the beauty and diversity that mushrooms have to offer. Photographer Steve Axford, however, is passionate about the world of fungi and shares his visual discoveries with many of his devoted followers.

Axford lives in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales in Australia, but he travels all around the world, capturing photos of rare animals, plants, and many different diverse people that he meets. What he loves photographing most, however, are fungi, many of which are so rare that they’ve never been photographed before – at least not in such an inspiring and artistic way. Enjoy!
