Koyo

I have just finished posting another photographic project on my Behance portfolio: Koyo.

Koyo is a collection of photos from Japan depicting the red leaves of the trees during the autumn. The word "koyo" is the Japanese word for the phenomenon, not for the leaves as explained to me by a friend when I was there. To maximize the impact of the colours on those who admire it, Japanese usually grow the threes in designed patterns and places. It's a fantastic sight which has as its rival only the flowering sakura (cherry blossom).
