Michael Kenna: Recent Travels

Michael Kenna: Recent Travels at Charles A. Hartman Fine Art. "...Sparse, calm and embodying a zen-like openness, Kenna’s photographic works are often the result of long exposures that accumulate light in a manner unattainable to the human eye. It is typical for him to work on numerous photographic projects simultaneously - landscapes, seascapes, urban and industrial studies - dividing his time amongst multiple locations as inspiration strikes. The artist’s insistence to use traditional cameras and to maintain his long-time darkroom practice using silver materials continues the contemplative process. Long after Kenna has left the site as subject, it reemerges via his patience, manipulation of light and intention to transform the material into a perception of a place in time."
