About the Artist
Michael Kenna’s landscapes are unpopulated, simple, serene, and subtle.

Often using very long exposures at night or dawn to soften the hard edge of reality, his minimalist images demand quiet attention from the viewer. Described as elegant, pure, and ephemeral, his work speaks eloquently to the strength of simple beauty.
Kenna’s small, quiet, black-and-white photographs have been published in over forty books and exhibited extensively, both internationally and throughout the United States. His work can be found in public collections such as the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Kushiro Art Museum, Hokkaido, Japan; and the Cincinnati Art Museum. Born and educated in England, Kenna now makes his home in Seattle, Washington.
