We joined Michael George on a trip to Japan to explore nature and the bold autumn of colors of Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and Nara.
Michael had the chance to enrich his budding love for Japan and its culture last November. The experience empowered his work in creative travel and inspired him to learn more about himself, his passions, and how certain colors and aesthetics relate to his craft. Focusing on the color yellow in Japan sharpened his awareness of autumn and the impending seasonal changes; the bold colors of nature matching the intense colors of temples and shrines.
