A stunning selection of black-and-white photographs taken by Michael Kenna over the past forty-five years.
Michael Kenna is regarded as one of the most accomplished photographers working today. This book charts Kenna’s work in the field of architectural photography, showing how his approach to the built environment informs his style, whether he’s capturing natural or human-made structures. In page after page of lush duotone illustrations, the book creates dialogs between images to show how Kenna applies light, shadow, composition, and perspective to similar effect in different settings. Yvonne Meyer-Lohr’s astute curatorial approach helps us understand how deftly Kenna moves between techniques, whether he is capturing the network of cables on a suspension bridge, the glittering jewels of a nighttime cityscape, or the haunting silhouette of a factory tower. Accompanied by insightful texts by Meyer-Lohr, this volume is a comprehensive look at a brilliant photographer whose dedication to craft and technique sets him apart from his contemporaries.
