I am continually haunted by the thoughts of what happened to Japan earlier this year. It is devastating.
My few trips to Japan have all been so incredibly positive where I felt so welcomed by the people. I have such love and affinity for the country and its people (and food!).
With my great interest in landscapes and their connection to us, as humans living on and amongst them,
I felt compelled to give these images for this great cause, as they represent (to me) living beauty, which is what was destroyed in March. (Andrew Paynter)
