Michael Kenna and Robert Mann
We had a very nice time seeing the great Michael Kenna again, at the always hospitable Robert Mann Gallery in Chelsea on a blustery pre- Christmas night.
The purpose was a book signing by Michael for his impressive new book “Huangshan”.
For a period of three years, Kenna photographed Huangshan, a range of mountains in Anhui, China, historic for being a source of artistic inspiration for Chinese painters and poets. Kenna offers a beautiful examination, capturing Huangshan’s seemingly infinite range of pine trees and the quiet intervention of its mountain peaks and surrounding mist. The book’s selection of 46 photographs embodies Kenna’s masterful ability to reinterpret iconic sites with his pensive and quietly romantic aesthetic.
