Photos of Mushroom Clouds Made of Mushrooms
For their new project The Fallout of the Food System, photographer Henry Hargreaves and stylist Caitlin Levin created photos to capture the threat of nuclear war to the global food system. The series shows images of mushroom clouds created with actual mushrooms.
“With the once unthinkable Nuclear threat re-entering the global discussion and the big little boys continue to throw their toys out of the pram, the threat to our global food system from nuclear war is real,” the artists tell PetaPixel. “The image of the mushroom cloud evokes the end of the world but fungi themselves have much to teach us about resiliency and adaptation in disturbed environments.”
Here’s a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how the project was done:
