Rouge by Michael Kenna. First Prestel edition (2016). Hardback in new condition. No markings. This is a new book. Dust jacket in a removable protective sleeve. Please see pictures. PayPal accepted, any questions please get in touch.
More than twenty years after its initial publication, Michael Kenna’s incredible collection of photographs of the Ford River Rouge industrial complex is now available in a brand new and expanded edition. As one of the world’s most acclaimed photographers, Kenna almost exclusively works in black-and-white. Michael Kenna has traveled the world to create transformative photographs of nature and manmade objects. Known for the ethereal tone and incredibly nuanced detail of his photographs, Kenna is also a chronicler of environmental degradation. His images of an auto plant outside of Detroit, Michigan, are some of his best-known works.
Now, long out of print, “Rouge” has been brought back to life with a spectacular new design. As well as an authoritative essay by art historian James Steward, and many previously unpublished images that were part of the original series. As the city of Detroit struggles to reclaim its heritage as an American commercial and artistic hub, these photographs resonate more than ever with the stark realities and hidden beauty of the industrial landscape.”
