Polymer photogravure print "Spore Scape 1" by John Pearson
Spore-Scape 1
Polymer Photogravure
7.375 x 9.875 in.

These "Spore Scapes" are photographs of the clouds of spores that mushrooms dropped when I placed their caps on card stock and let them settle for a day or two. The slight air currents in the room caused the spores to drift and create filmy shapes. Tiny insects escaping the severed caps left wandering trails.
