Michael Kenna, Photographer

Of the many new things I discovered on my trip to Japan a few years ago, one of the least expected was the work of Michael Kenna (born 1953, Widnes Lancashire), one of the world’s leading landscape photographers. Shot all round the world, his images are often simple, sometimes stark but always, always beautiful. I first saw an exhibition of some of his pictures of Japan but I also love his collections inspired by the British countryside. Check out his website, search out his books, look out for his exhibitions, it’s all truly inspiring stuff.


One thought on “Michael Kenna, Photographer

  1. Once you have seen his work it will stay with you; truly impressive and it inspires you to view stark, simple landscapes in an entirely different light.
