Fleshy Fungi.

Though these images were done in 1989-90, I first began this particular visual search in 1982. For eight years I primarily exposed the front object by moving in very close to it, using an extreme wide angle lens in order to exaggerate and enlarge it so that it dominated the image area while the area behind it became miniaturized. In this way, I intended to change the reality of a microcosmic world.
