About Ratcliffe Power StationFirstly, Michael Kenna first began photographing the Ratcliffe power station in the 1980s. Then over the past several years he has visited the site many times. Producing a body of work as ominous as it is beautiful. The Ratcliffe photographs take on the tonal quality of a partially lit ecosphere unique to the photographer and his subject. Kenna's grainy, spatial topography also epitomizes the gray skies of Northern England that were the ubiquitous backdrop to his childhood. As a result, Kenna's Ratcliffe photographs create the impression of an atmospherically foggy day, registering the homeostasis of a mood that is a dominant characteristic of his work.
