  • Details

One of the world’s most acclaimed photographers working exclusively in black-and-white, Michael Kenna has traveled the world to create stunning, magical images of nature and manmade objects. Known for the ethereal tone and incredibly nuanced detail of his photographs, Kenna is also a chronicler of environmental degradation. His images of an auto plant outside of Detroit, Michigan, are some of his best-known works. Long out of print, Rouge has been brought back to life with a spectacular new design, an authoritative essay by art historian James Steward, and many previously unpublished images that were part of the original series. As the city of Detroit struggles to reclaim its heritage as an American commercial and artistic hub, these photographs resonate more than ever with the stark realities and hidden beauty of the industrial landscape.

Name: D. Coma  aus Annapolis Datum: 31.08.2016

Wäre durchaus angemessen, wenn erwähnt würde, dass die Aufnahmen aus den späten 80ern / frühen 90ern stammen und bereits 1995 bei RAM veröffentlicht wurden. Ob sich am Inhalt etwas verändert hat, wäre ebenfalls interessant, ansonsten sieht es so aus, als ob nur das "The" im Titel weggefallen wäre.

Abgesehen von dieser verlagstechnischen Schlamperei, ein wunderbares Buch.
