Acclaimed English photographer Michael Kenna’s career spans across four decades, over four-hundred-and-fifty solo exhibitions, and has work included in more than a hundred permanent collections. These include but are not limited to; The Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; The Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The National Gallery, Washington, D.C.; The Shanghai Art Museum, Shanghai; and The Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
Michael’s signature style is attributed to his long time exposures – mainly taken at dawn or in the dark hours of the night – which capture the interactions between the natural landscape and human-made structures. His intimate gelatin silver prints are still hand-made, reflect a sense of refinement, his appreciation of photographic history, and have become a trademark of his artistic approach.
Over seventy monographs and exhibition catalogs have been published on Kenna’s work, including; Michael Kenna - A Twenty Year Retrospective (Treville, 1994 and Nazraeli Press, 2000); Impossible to Forget (Marval and Nazraeli Press, 2001); Japan (Nazraeli Press and Treville Editions, 2003); Michael Kenna – A Retrospective (BnF, 2009); Immagini del Settimo Giorno (Skira, 2010); China (Posts and Telecom Press, 2014); Forms of Japan (Prestel, 2015); and Beyond Architecture - Michael Kenna (Prestel 2019). Kenna currently resides in Seattle, WA.
