The unusual diversity of shapes, colors and textures of these fungi is a visual reminder of just how beautiful life on this planet really is. Each specimen, photographed in its natural environment, is a testament that nothing exists in isolation, and everything is interconnected. All of the fungi is left untouched and unaltered, documented by Axford so that people around the world can enjoy the ethereal beauty.

Some months ago Axford left his beloved Australia to wander around with his camera throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of Xishuangbanna, in China and Chiang Mai, in Thailand. What he found was a handful of species that may be unknown to science and documented for the first time.

The new images include a types like the Amanita hemibapha eggs and Cookeina Tricholoma, a bizarre-looking cup-shaped, hairy fungi we can now admire thanks to the photograph’s lens.
