A selection of photos from "Gazing Over the Garden Wall"

An exploration of expectations versus reality, love for a physical place, and the long awaited first meeting of lovers.

 

"I am gazing over the garden wall.

 

My lover sits on the other side under a cherry blossom tree.

 

Though we have never met I feel as if I know them.

 

For many years I return to the wall to admire and dream of what life might be like at my lover’s side.

 

Eventually gazing is no longer enough, I have to meet them.

 

The intimate moments of that meeting are captured in this book.

 

Now it is your turn to gaze over the garden wall,

 

to see my Japan."
