Michael Kenna @ Catherine Edelman Gallery
Michael Kenna New Work
July 8 — September 2, 2016
OPENING RECEPTION / BOOK SIGNING WITH THE ARTIST: July 8, 5:00–7:30 p.m.
For more than thirty-five years, Michael Kenna has traveled the world, sharing his vision through small black and white gelatin silver photographs. With more than fifty books published on his work, he is undoubtedly one of the most exhibited and collected photographers working today. Whether working along the shores and temples of Japan, among the villages in Italy, the vineyards in France, or the mountains in China, Kenna seeks places of silence where the viewer can stop, breathe and appreciate the haunting beauty found in nature. His pictures are quiet and intimate, taken in places that are both remote and familiar. He hikes mountains, travels across frozen lakes, battles tourist buses… constantly searching for a particular moment or view.
