About Night Work

So, this book is a wonderful addition to any collection of books by landscape photographer Michael Kenna. Here he confirms his position as one of the most talented and prolific photographers working today. Spanning over two decades worth of work, this book provides a look at Kenna’s night imagery. “Kenna has more than mastered the technical aspects of night photography. His photographs are well crafted, beautiful images which both engage and challenge the viewer with their poetic sensuality and psychological tension. Through his photographs, Kenna shows us locations that may be familiar by day and transforms them into evocative and mysterious places.” -Deborah Klochko “My wish is to act as a catalyst, a medium, for a viewer’s imagination. I expect a viewer to enter into the picture and react with the environment that is found there. The image can then be completed in the viewer’s own mind. I suppose that I photograph empty stage sets where we all have the potential to create our own stories. I therefore consider this a form of interactive art.” -Michael Kenna
