Japan – The Colours Within

By Garry Sonter

I never imagined so many years ago that an invitation to Japan would lead to a love of the people, culture and the land.

Years later I returned to Japan for a year to re-indulge and to develop a better understanding of the way of life in such an intriguing place. I managed to avoid the temptation of earning the strong Japanese Yen and found my own wealth going to festivals, overnight trips into the mountains and cycling parts of Japan on an old bike I named Tombo (Dragonfly), all with a camera in hand.

About Garry Sonter

To say Garry is excited about camping would be an understatement. Given a choice between a luxury hotel and a tent, he would probably opt for the tent. Garry loves introducing people to the outdoors and nature. And in return enjoys seeing them make their own connections. Garry strives for perfection with his photography. He has held exhibitions in his homeland of Australia and in Japan and he is in endless pursuit of photographic opportunities to illustrate how he interacts with life and the outdoors.
