Sharing the spirit of Japanese gardens
American photographer William Corey devoted nearly three decades of his life to making photographs that explore and express the essence of traditional Japanese gardens. Captured in Japan with much patience and diligence using a large format view camera, Corey’s photos portray in exquisite detail and richness the beauty of Japanese gardens.
William Corey Gallery, established by his wife Reimi after Corey’s passing in 2008, preserves, promotes and sells prints of his lifework. We sell museum-quality fine art prints through our website and support exhibitions of the work internationally.
Please note that William Corey Gallery, while based in the state of Colorado, does not maintain a permanent physical exhibition space. If you are interested in viewing Corey’s work in person, please contact us so we can help you find an exhibition or installation near you.

In 1974, photographer William Corey was sitting in his Colorado home watching a PBS documentary on Japanese gardens. Within a week he was in Japan, studying and admiring the ancient art of growing.

The Printing Process
The contemporary fine-art photo printing process is a collaborative effort in which a team of specialists come together to create a final work of art.
At a crossroad in my artistic life, I made a decision in 1981 to devote my career to photographing the ‘good’ that mankind was capable of — those successful integrations of man and his environment.

The Artist’s Reflections On Photography
I feel that the great gift we have been given as photographers are not the pictures, but simply the being “out there,”… the living of a marvelous adventure.
