This portrait series of scanned fungi, realised in collaboration with Véronique Ducharme, comes from a mutual fascination for the forest. the detailed macro aesthetic and the process of scanning these mushrooms is reminiscent of botanical exploration and scientific illustration, however, unlike the work of biologists, mystology is concerned with preserving and amplifying the dark mystery surrounding its subject.
