Through the Rabbit Hole: Jason Fulford's Mushroom Collector at Dexter Sinister

On Saturday, March 26, the Dexter Sinister "Sometime Bookshop and Ofttime Maker of Projects" space, run by Stuart Bailey and David Reinfurt, was turned into a darkroom-for-a-day in support of a project by Jason Fulford—one of several art workshops in Fulford's itinerant Mushroom Collector series.

Jason Fulford: The Mushroom CollectorJason Fulford: The Mushroom Collector

Published by The Soon Institute.
Edited by Lorenzo De Rita.

This publication reprints a beloved photobook classic--acknowledged as such by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger in the third volume of The Photobook : A History--that has been out of print since the hardcover edition was published in 2010. As photographer Jason Fulford (born 1973) recently learned firsthand, mushrooms have a way of growing and spreading wherever they touch ground. It all started when a friend of Fulford's gave him a box, found at a flea market, full of photos of mushrooms—unassuming pictures taken by an unknown but almost certainly amateur photographer, apparently as notes for some mycological studies. Fulford's art photographs (aside from his well-known book Dancing Pictures, which depicted people getting down to their favorite songs) are usually of staid, quasi-mute objects: a smashed Dorito chip overrun with ants, two bronzed doorknobs spooning, the blank back of a street sign. Yet these mushroom images got stuck in Fulford's mind, like a bad song sometimes does, and they started to grow in his own work. The Mushroom Collector combines some of the original flea-market mushroom pictures with his own images and text by the artist about the project.

Published by Aperture.
By Jason Fulford, Tamara Shopsin.

Aimed at children ages five and up, this clever and surprising picture book by artists and collaborators, Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin, takes young viewers on a whimsical journey while teaching them associative thinking and visual language, as well as colors, shapes and numbers. Through a simple narrative and a rhythmic sequence of photographs, the book generates multiple meanings, making the experience of reading the book interactive--parent and child must ask questions and come up with their own answers, drawing on the child’s imagination. Each spread presents a new relationship that changes and shifts as the book unfolds, with the last picture relating again to the first, forming a circle. Through playful and inspired sequencing, everyday scenes are transformed into a game of pairs, enjoyable for adults and children alike.
Jason Fulford (born 1973) is a photographer and cofounder of the nonprofit J&L Books. He is a contributing editor at Blind Spot and a frequent lecturer at universities. His monographs include Sunbird (2000), Crushed (2003), Raising Frogs for $$$ (2006), The Mushroom Collector (2010) and Hotel Oracle (2013).
Tamara Shopsin (born 1979) is a graphic designer and illustrator whose work has been featured in The New York Times, Good, Time, Wired and Newsweek. She is the author of Mumbai New York Scranton and designer of 5 Year Diary. She is also a cook at her family’s restaurant, Shopsin’s, in New York.

Jason Fulford: Hotel OracleJason Fulford: Hotel Oracle

Published by The Soon Institute.
Edited by Lorenzo De Rita. Text by Jason Fulford.

”My neighbor June believes in Zeus” is the arresting opening sentence of Jason Fulford’s latest photo book. At once humorous and full of reverence, Hotel Oracle is a sustained visual meditation on the cosmos--what constitutes it, what its future might be and how to reconcile the world of the supernatural with the world of the 99-cent store. Fulford’s photos of everyday scenes and people search out the clues and signs of the prophetic and the numinous, readily mingling them with the banal and the preposterous. The pictures in Hotel Oracle were taken in the US, Canada, Italy, Greece, the Czech Republic, Poland, South Korea, Japan, Hungary, India, Bermuda and Germany. Fulford is a photographer, cofounder of J&L Books and a contributing editor to Blind Spot magazine. His books include Sunbird (2000), Crushed (2003), Raising Frogs For $ $ $ (2006) and The Mushroom Collector (2010). Limited stock available.

Jason Fulford: The Mushroom CollectionJason Fulford: The Mushroom Collection

Minneapolis

Published by Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

Photographer Jason Fulford’s Mushroom Collection project began with a set of photographs of wild mushrooms found at a flea market. These anonymous photographs inspired Fulford to create his own collection of photographs, publications, sculptures and performances, culminating in a final exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and this accompanying catalogue. In the exhibition, the original found photographs are displayed alongside Fulford’s own photographs and videos. The show continues through the museum’s other galleries, where Fulford spread additional mushrooms to interact with works in the permanent collection. In a similar spirit, the catalogue invites readers to curate interventions with works from the MIA’s permanent collection by providing color reproductions of Fulford’s photographs--bound into the book on perforated stamp sheets--that can be affixed on the following pages according to the reader’s preference. Limited stock available.

Jason Fulford: CrushedJason Fulford: Crushed

Published by J&L Books.

Crushed is Jason Fulford's second book. This selection of color photographs was inspired by the contrast in the feelings of sadness and humor--one interpretation being that beauty and humor can provide both antidote and a necessary companion to melancholy. These pictures were taken from 1997 to 2001 in the United States, Canada, France, Hungary, India, Iceland, China and Romania.

Jason Fulford: Raising Frogs for $ $ $Jason Fulford: Raising Frogs for $ $ $

Published by The Ice Plant.

Jason Fulford has arranged his third collection of photographs into eight distinct chapters that can be read as a game, a series of essays, an abstract visual narrative or all of the above. "The intention of this edit and layout," Fulford explains, "is to create as many relationships as possible between the pictures as well as the chapters. I like the idea of a meticulously planned-out event that remains unpredictable." The work in Raising Frogs for $ $ $ was selected from the photographer's personal archive, from images taken in various countries between 1997 and 2005. Fulford's photographs have been used on book covers by Don Delillo, John Updike, Bertrand Russell, Terry Eagleton, Ha Jin and many others. His work frequently appears in Harper's and The New York Times Magazine. He lives in Brooklyn and Scranton, PA, and is a cofounder of J&L Books.
