Alison Pollack is a macro and extreme macro photographer specializing in Myxomycetes (slime molds) and mushrooms. Her passion is finding and photographing these beautiful organisms, especially the smaller ones, to bring awareness to the beauty that exists right at our feet as we walk through the forest. Her goal is to reveal these miniature beauties of the forest in a format that is as much art as science. Alison's photographs have been featured in dozens of print and online publications, including National Geographic, Der Spiegel, Science Weekly, and the Sunday New York Times. For the past two years she was a Top 20 winner in the international Nikon Small World photography competition.
