Steve Axford lives in Australia’s New South Wales but his photography has taken him all over the world. Many of the photos from the stunning Fungi – Recyclers collection include some rare species that have never been documented in Australia before. The temperate fungi in Victoria and Tasmania are quite well known, but the sub-tropical fungi species near his home hasn’t been documented before.

Axford’s amazing photos capture the enchanting organisms’ different shapes, sizes, textures and colors, as well as delicate transparency and glow in the dark properties. They provide a closer look into the magical world of fungi, highlighting the intricate details and interactions between different life forms that we would otherwise miss. “While doing this I have developed an acute interest in the way things fit together,” Axford says, “nothing exists in isolation and the more you look, the more you find.”
