The Late Night Photography of Michael Kenna

02-21-2012

The images of Michael Kenna suspend the world in a quiet stillness. Often working at dawn or through the night, Kenna employs extended exposure times of up to 10 hours that lend his images a touch of the surreal. A seminal visit to Japan in 1987 inspired Kenna to capture stark terrains and graceful landscapes the world over.

His photographs hang in permanent galleries in the Bibliotheque, Paris, The Museum of Decorative Arts, Prague,  The National Gallery of Art, Washington DC and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
