Japan fascinates its visitors with unexpectedly beautiful landscapes, charmingly courteous people and its tangible sense of history and cherished traditions.
Few will be able to resist the chance to get to grips with its mysterious yet tantalizing culture that blurs the traditional boundaries between East and West. Japan is unique, neither wholly one nor the other. Welcome to Japan, welcome to another dimension!
Pascal Mannaerts is a freelance photographer based in Brussels. A part of his work is presented on his website and on his Instagram account. Blessed with an artistic bent and wanderlust, he discovered photography during his student years. Sharing and recording his travel adventures became a priority. A first visit to India in 2000 revealed a deep admiration for the Subcontinent. This is the first of many return engagements.
Travelling to Asia, Africa, Latin America, North Africa and the Middle East during the last 10 years has given Pascal the opportunity to portray humanity in its strongest forms. Curiosity and a passion for images have been fused with a profound attraction to the human element.
Pascal has publication credits in National Geographic, BBC, Geo, The Guardian, Le Guide du Routard, Lonely planet, Médecins Sans Frontières and in many newspapers and magazines worldwide. Several exhibitions of his pictures were held in Paris, Belgium, Brazil and India by, among others, Alliance française, Amnesty International and Les Maisons du Voyage.
