Michael Kenna

Photography by Michael Kenna. I have become a bit obsessed with this kind of dead silent, meditative, photography lately. I can’t remember where I first saw Kenna’s work but something about it felt very Japanese, like reading a haiku. Later I found out that most of the images I was looking at, had actually been shot in Japan.

    I don’t remember where I’ve seen this series before, but I do remember clicking through it for at least a half an hour, and being enthralled the entire time.

    Excellent stuff.

  • this is really rad – man jeff you have been finding some good stuff lately haha

  • Really inspiring, I do love how the photos feel so silent, even though, obviously, photos are always “silent”, but there just seems to be still that transends (sp) whenever I look at photos such as, and in some ways these are more gripping than photos cluttered and colorful! 😉
