Paradise: the Gardens of  Tokyo

A paradise in an urban tangle of overhead wires, grey buildings and
sullen commuters, the gardens of Tokyo are a tangible, organic
connection with Japan's rich and fabled past.

A selection of prints from Paradise: The Gardens of Tokyo
has been acquired for the permanent collection of the
National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa).
