About Huangshan: The Yellow Mountain

Huangshan (The Yellow Mountain) is an exquisite one hundred and sixty square mile mountain range in Anhui province in eastern China. The range is especially known for its seventy two uniquely shaped granite peaks. Also the ubiquitous pine trees that literally grow right out of the rock faces. As well as the ever changing form of flowing clouds as seen from above. Originally named Yishan (Yi Mountain), legend has it that the mountain was renamed. After the Yellow Emperor (Huang Di) ascended to heaven there in 747 AD. The mountain range continues to be the subject of numerous traditional Chinese paintings and literature, and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. Today, it is one of China’s most popular tourist attractions.

In 2007, Michael Kenna made his first pilgramage to Huangshan. Then, three years later Nazraeli Press published the monograph of the photographs he made on this and subsequent visits. The first edition of this book sold out quickly. So Nazraeli Press is pleased to announce a new, expanded edition of the book. Published on the tenth anniversary of Kenna’s first visit to the site. Huangshan: The Yellow Mountain includes fourteen new, previously unpublished photographs as well as the original forty six.
