EASTER ISLAND by Michael Kenna Situated in the South Pacific, Easter Island is more than 2,000 miles from the nearest population centers, making it one of the most isolated places on earth. Best known for the giant stone monoliths, or Moai, dotting its coastline, the island was named by Admiral Roggeveen, who chanced upon the triangle of volcanic rock on Easter Sunday in the year 1772. Michael Kenna has photographed Easter Island over a period of two years, creating a powerful new body of work which pays homage to the beauty of the island and the continuing mystery of its past. Kenna selected forty images from this project for publication in Easter Island. Our fourth publication on the work of Michael Kenna, Easter Island is beautifully printed in duotone on matt art paper and bound in cloth. Michael Kenna?s work is represented in the permanent collections of such institutions as The National Gallery of Art, Washington; The Victoria & Albert Museum, London; and The Museum of Decorative Arts, Prague.
