Michael Kenna is an English landscape photographer best known for his black and white images. His work is simple, memorable and haunting. I have always loved the zen like quality of good black and white photography. Kenna is a master at capturing simple beauty.
“My work is about getting away from the chaos of this life. I find my work as it goes along becomes quieter, and simple in some ways, more stark, a little sparse, more haiku like…it almost becomes for me a place of meditation, a place of calm, of solitude,…solace, it’s almost an oasis.” Kenna
Ted Forbes makes videos about photography and does a wonderful job exploring some of the work of Kenna through his series known as The Art of Photograph that he shares on YouTube. Enjoy!
