Japanese Gardens Captured by Photographer William Corey


Late photographer William Corey captured the beauty and essence of Japanese gardens during more than 30 years.


In 1974 Boulder photographer William Corey was sitting in his Colorado home watching a PBS documentary on Japanese gardens. He was so intrigued that the next day he dropped in on a travel agency and inquired about traveling to Japan. Within a week he was there, studying and admiring the ancient art of growing.


Twenty-eight years later, with numerous trips to Japan and countless images recorded, Corey may well be considered the premier garden photographer. At this point in his career, he is considered the foremost western artist to photograph Japanese Gardens and the only western photographer ever invited to photograph the gardens of the Japanese Emperor.
