for nearly 25 years, Michael Kenna uses extended night exposures
(in black and white
) to dramatically transform the landscape
. His subjects tend to be simple- nuclear power plants
, rivers, bridges, fountains
, yet he makes them magical and otherworldly
His published work includes Night Walk
, Night Work
, and Le Notre’s Gardens
. He shoots a vast majority of his work in Europe.
Kenna, now in his 50’s, is British
but currently lives in San Francisco
The web site http://www.edelmangallery.com/kenna.htm has several examples of Kenna’s images, and if you have lots of money
you could buy one too.
