Michael Kenna – Biography

Speaking about his personal stature, Michael Kenna is an English Photographer who loves to capture the incredible nature with some beautiful light. He loves to perform his penance usually during dawn or night. Having been exhibited all over the globe and having travelled to numerous countries with rich natural beauty, It is interesting to learn that Michael Kenna was initially trained as a priest before he actually took up photography once moving to london. His childhood has an immense effect on his way of photography. Those empty stadiums and abandoned mills, places of silence fascinated him much further and Michael always wanted to capture the invisible behind the visible. Author of some wonderful books Michael Kenna continues to inspire us through his astounding art creations.

Why I like Michael Kenna

Having watched quite a few videos of our master, the first thing that striked me is the passion and curiosity for him in search of divinity. It may be a quest to capture the unseen or an exploration towards much bigger things. And he strongly believes “Fortune favors the one, who works hard”.

  • These Photographs are words of emotions, sometimes silence and at times the music from a bird’s feather flock.
  • To translate words of emotions through monochrome landscapes is an innovation into our medium of photography. Which I believe only a few photographers have been able to achieve out of their own originality.
  • Shows the magnificence of composition, the excellence it can provide and elevate your photograph or artwork to a totally new level.
  • I keep admiring the beautiful-innocent light, subtle-simple elements and his utterly brilliant placements of them inside a frame.
  • There seems to be a serious question inside these photographs and a near enlightenment  within the same photograph.

Famous Quotes from Michael Kenna

  • “I gravitate towards places where humans have been and are no more, to the edge of man’s influence, where the elements are taking over or convering man’s traces.”
  • “I do have strong convictions and political opinions, but I don’t think it’s necessary to imbue my photographic work with them. I use photography as a vessel for visual material to flow through, to encourage conversation with the viewer. I try to present a catalyst and invite viewers to tell their own stories.”
