The William Corey Gallery (WCG) LLC was established by Reimi Adachi in 2008. WCG is an online photo gallery that sells fine art photographs both online and offline. We also participate in physical exhibitions hosted by the other galleries, institutions, and public spaces.
After William Corey succumbed to cancer and left this world in 2008, his wife Reimi has become a dedicated conservator and promoter of William’s work. It has become our mission to take on his lifework and promote his large-format fine art photography internationally.
The three main goals of our mission:
William wanted to share the beauty of the Japanese garden and its culture. He tried to capture the spirit of the garden, but his photography goes even further. His mastery of natural light, his highly structured sense of composition, and his flair for recognizing moments of epiphany in his dramatic large photographs produce works of art that bring the subject matter to a viewer in entirely new ways. It challenges us to use all of our senses as well as our mind. One of William’s themes was enabling awareness. Such an approach brings one back to William’s images again and again without ever becoming tired of them. His theme should be passed on to many people, so that they too can become more aware of the beauty that is around them.
As a Japanese national who lived in Boulder, Colorado, for many years, Reimi also resonates deeply with William’s desire to become a cultural bridge between countries through his photography. Reimi considers herself to be a Goodwill Ambassador for introducing the beauty, serenity, and contentment of the Japanese garden as seen from the viewpoint and culture of a Westerner. She wants to share this with people internationally.
Reimi is also cancer survivor herself and looked after her loved one, William, as he fought the disease. From these experiences, she has a deep understanding of people who find themselves in similar circumstances and who are going through the most difficult time of their lives. She feels William’s images nourish the mind and soul and offer peacefulness and compassion to viewers. To have peace in one’s heart is the first step in the healing process.
WCG strives to offer the highest quality of fine art prints by employing the most advanced technical standards available in the field today.
