Nicknamed by researchers the 'wood wide web' trees communicate with each other via fungal networks to combat threats. Using this underground network they share information and resources giving special attention to their offspring. In return the fungus is supplied nutrients.
Uncovering a pile of rotting pine planks I stumbled across myriads of intricate fronds of fungus that had weaved their way around the rotting wood. As each fungus laden layer was exposed diminutive forests were revealed.
By merging images of pine trees with the fungus I set about photographically exploring their relationship. The resemblances between the trees and their symbiotic partner re-imagined into surreal forest landscapes.
