JAPAN by Michael Kenna ?He has been reflective when others have been militant, romantic when others have been skeptical. Such isolation can starve all but the most independent of talents, but for these it can provide a sanctuary where visions can develop undisturbed. Kenna is one of these.© ? Joanna Pitman, The Times (London)

Michael Kenna?s photographs have long inspired words such as mysterious, elegant, and hauntingly beautiful ? adjectives that likewise describe the Japanese landscape. The photographs in Kenna?s important new monograph, Japan, are the result of an ideal pairing of artist and subject. Kenna has had a large following in Japan ever since his first exhibition there in 1987. His many subsequent exhibitions and publications in Japan have provided him with ample opportunities to visit and photograph. During the past several years, as this project began to take shape, Kenna?s trips became more frequent and intense. The resulting images are stunning. Superbly printed in tritone, Japan is hardbound in red cloth and presented in a Japanese folding slipcase. Text in Japanese and English by Kotaro Iizawa. Publication coincides with a series of exhibitions in the US and Japan.

Hardcover, slipcased, 12 x 13, 108 pages, 96 tritone plates. ISBN 1-59005-068-1 (Second printing)
