This image was taken at Matopos, Zimbabwe 2016. After developing this image in January 2017, while attending the TAKT Art Residency in Berlin, I found myself seeing a whole universe within it.
A lichen, or lichenized fungus, is actually two organisms functioning as a single, stable unit. Lichens comprise a fungus living in a symbiotic relationship with an alga or cyanobacterium (or both in some instances). There are about 17,000 species of lichen worldwide.
These images were taken just outside of St Moritz, Switzerland.
