SANTA MONICA, CA.- Peter Fetterman Gallery presents an exhibition by acclaimed photographer Michael Kenna. Representing one of the leading international artists working in the traditional black and white photographic medium, showcasing over forty seminal works by the artist spanning his prolific career. The exhibition is the first for Michael Kenna at Peter Fetterman Gallery.

Michael Kenna (England, b. 1953) has long been recognized for the dream-like landscapes that make up the majority of his work and has been exhibited internationally since the late 1970’s. Kenna travels six months out of the year to remote locations around the world and patiently wanders the landscape in search of light and forms that conjure an emotional response. Using techniques of long-exposure and shooting primarily at night or under foggy climatic conditions, Kenna creates ethereal photographs that show a seemingly deserted planet illuminated by a mysterious glow.

After studying at the London College of Printing (1973-1976) Kenna moved to San Francisco where he met master American photographer Ruth Bernhard and became her assistant and printmaker for eight years. In his first retrospective monograph from 1994 Bernhard states, “Michael’s photographs are islands of serenity and silence in a loud and chaotic world. [...] His prints are exquisitely seductive, spiritual experiences, akin to poetry or music.” In celebration of his most recent monograph Shinan (Nazraeli Press), a portion of the exhibition will feature new work from the Shinan region of South Korea. Kenna’s photography has been published in over two-dozen books and has been exhibited extensively throughout North America, Asia, Europe and Australia. He is based in Seattle and continues to travel throughout the world making work.
