Phenomenally Photographed Fungi

During the Nomadic Fungi Spore Sprouting Test the staff at NFI were click, click, clicking away, filling up one memory card after another with photographs in hopes of capturing every nuance within each spore sprouting jar. Click, click click. Click, click click. A digital mountain of photographs.

Those photographs were about scientific standards for documentation. They were not about capturing an image that clearly defines the scope and beauty of these lab samples. For that NFI needed a photographer with saperiour skills, and who would not be overly concerned about exposing their camera equipment to a fungus that loves to eat things like circuit boards, rubber gaskets, and alkaline batteries....

Who did we find? Who else but the very brave and extremly talented photographer Barry Snidow. He is a master at light refraction and a poet with an SLR.
He gave each NFI Lab Sample the full New York Fashion Week treatment.

They look marvelous darling!
