    series of photographs 
  • Travelling in Japan in 2009, I took a series of photographs depicting Japanese pavement gardens. Private outdoor space is very rare in Japan. In order to be able to maintain a garden, Japanese city dwellers adopt a small part of the pavement. These pavement gardens are very well kept, and composed of pots with all kinds of beautiful plants. Pictures taken in Tokyo, Kyoto, Kanazawa and on Shikoku.
