Lot Details

"Channel Crossing, Calais, France," executed in 1997, is an excellent example of the style and subject matter for which Michael Kenna is best known. His photographs are often taken at dawn or in the dark hours of night, and concentrate primarily on the interaction between the ephemeral atmospheric conditions of the natural landscape, and human-made structures and sculptural mass. A diurnal and nocturnal photographer, Kenna is fascinated by times of day when light is at its most pliant. With night time exposures of up to ten hours, his photographs often record details that the human eye is not able to perceive. Kenna’s intimate, exquisitely crafted black and white prints reflect a sense of refinement, respect for history, and thorough originality.
