Japan - away from cherry blossoms and kimono
As a photojournalist, Patrick Rohr has traveled to completely different countries around the world in recent years: Ukraine, Laos, Nepal, Uganda, Bosnia, Ethiopia, Bangladesh. A country definitely never stood on top of it bucket list: Japan. The country seemed too strange, too inaccessible, too incomprehensible to him. Two years ago he finally allowed himself to be persuaded to take a (private) trip to the land of the rising sun - and didn't want to go home. Everything that had stopped him before suddenly attracted him. Hardly in Switzerland, he went back to Japan - this time with the camera and the notepad. Fascinated and irritated by the contrasts of the island kingdom, he went in search of a Japan that would not be accessible as a tourist. He came back with very personal pictures and stories that he shows and tells at Photo Münsingen.
