Mushroom & Friends Issue 1 is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Mushrooms & Friends by Phyllis Ma features mushrooms from a Brooklyn organic mushroom farm and the forests of Upstate New York. These fungal specimens appear in fantastical landscapes, with their macroscopic details enhanced by dreamlike arrangements.

But the fantasy treatment underlies something more compelling about these fruiting bodies. Mushrooms are magical–not strictly in the mind-altering sense–but also in their transformative ability to create beauty from rubbish. Often growing on decaying matter and sometimes in collaboration with other plants, they are a model of sustainable living and creative survival, and not to mention, delicious too.

As Anna Tsing writes in The Mushroom at the End of the World: “We are stuck with the problem of living despite economic and ecological ruination. Neither tales of progress nor of ruin tell us how to think about collaborative survival. It is time to pay attention to mushroom picking. Not that this will save us–but it might open our imaginations.”
