Taylor Lockwood on Mushrooms: Greatest Hits & Latest Clips
In Rhode Island for his first visit since 2014, mushroom adventurer Lockwood will narrate video clips and slides from his latest, global expedition—and from across his 34-year career. You won’t want to miss what is being billed as the last tour for this unique mycologist. Be the first to see new images, including animations of bioluminescent and other beautiful mushrooms.
US Scott 5267, by Taylor Lockwood
A Lockwood photograph of bioluminescent mushrooms is featured in the recent U.S. postage stamp series on bioluminescence. It is the first U.S. postage stamp with a mushroom as its main subject (Penicilium, a mold, is featured on SC#3186b; mushrooms appear on just 8 other U.S. stamps but always in the background).
Lockwood’s work has been featured numerous times on the cover of FUNGI magazine, in National Geographic, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and many other publications. Like many other amateur and professional mycologists, he is a pioneer in the discovery and appreciation of mushrooms and other fungi.
