“These photographs document several of the various types of mould which can be found growing on your average loaf of bread, given enough time and neglect.”
So says Martin Scott-Jupp, the photographer behind these amazing photos. They’re from a series called Colony featuring the beauty and wonder you can find in decaying matter and growing fungi. If you weren’t told that these were molds you probably wouldn’t have ever known, thinking they were some kind of tiny flowers or a set of miniatures shot in a sort of tilt shift way. Who know something so gross could be so beautiful?
