JASON FULFORD »THE MUSHROOM COLLECTOR« – selected by BRUNO CESCHEL

»This is a mesmerizing and disorientating book. It draws you in, it entrances you, it lets you believe that you understand it, only to then abandon you in a state of bewildered amazement and sometimes frustration. You make connections, you foolishly believe you can break the hidden codes, that you have a bond with Jason, that you have become his partner in crime and share his sense of fun and amusement. That you know what he is telling you. And then you turn the page and your convictions crumble in front of your very eyes. The found photographs of mushrooms, Jason’s own beautiful images of the mundane, his diary/captions; it all seems so apparent. But like the best incarnations of photography/art, things are not as they appear, they have an innate mystery. They are sublimely damned with ambiguities. I like to think that this book is as mysterious to Jason as it is to me.«
