Biography

Photographer Michael Kenna was born in 1953 in Widnes, Lancashire, an industrial town in the northwest of England and attended the Banbury School of Art and the London School of Printing. Kenna is best known for his black and white, square format landscapes taken all over the world. Focusing on unusual landscapes with ethereal light, Kenna’s photographs are achieved by photographing at dawn or at night with exposures of up to 10 hours. Kenna constructs each body of work as as long term projects that he often revisits as secondary bodies of work in the same locations years later. Kenna has exhibited in numerous exhibitions throughout the world with permanent collections in the Bibliotheque, Paris; The Museum of Decorative Arts, Prague; The National Gallery of Art, Washington DC; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Kenna currently resides in Seattle, WA.
