Seen Machel’s mushroom photos? On display starting today

If you have looked at – and/or participated in – the WSB photo pool on Flickr, you have likely admired the work of Machel Spence, whose favored subject is mushrooms, and other fungi. She e-mailed us today to share the news that her photos are now on display at Coffee to a Tea with Sugar in The Junction, today through the end of the month, and she’ll be there on January 13 to meet anyone interested in talking about them. She also says her photos are under consideration for a book, too! By the way, January 13 happens to be the first West Seattle Art Walk of the year – 6-9 pm; we’ll have the full list of venues (which changes quarter-by-quarter, and this WSAW starts a new quarter) as soon as it’s available.

    Thanks for the heads-up, WSB! Machel’s photos are wonderful and I’m looking forward to seeing them on display.

    If you haven’t seen Machel’s work in person, you should check this out. Machel has brought sexy back to mushrooms!

      That’s an awesome way to put it. I see her photos every day when I check the Flickr group for new additions, and marvel at not just how beautiful the fungi themselves appear, but also the ethereal surroundings – forest, mist, ground, etc.

    Just a note–Machel will also be donating 10% of the proceeds that she makes from any photography sales to the Nature Consortium, a West Seattle based arts & environment nonprofit. Her pictures are gorgeous and by purchasing one you can help her out AND contribute to another worthy cause!

    Really cool. Mushrooms are some of the most challenging photographic subjects out there, and these are great.

Sorry, comment time is over.
