Michael Kenna is regarded as one of the most accomplished photographers working today. This book charts Kenna's work in the field of architectural photography, showing how his approach to the built environment informs his style, whether he's capturing natural or human-made structures. In page after page of lush duotone illustrations, the book creates dialogs between images to show how Kenna applies light, shadow, composition, and perspective to similar effect in different settings. Yvonne Meyer-Lohr's astute curatorial approach helps us understand how deftly Kenna moves between techniques, whether he is capturing the network of cables on a suspension bridge, the glittering jewels of a nighttime cityscape, or the haunting silhouette of a factory tower. Accompanied by insightful texts by Meyer-Lohr, this volume is a comprehensive look at a brilliant photographer whose dedication to craft and technique sets him apart from his contemporaries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Kenna aficionados can enjoy losing themselves as they wander, like flaneurs, through the rich black-and-white world built by Meyer-Lohr from the works of Michael Kenna." -PhotoBook Journal

"An old-school monograph charting Kenna's contribution to the field of architectural photography, and presented in a gloriously tactile layered jacket in which the title is on a different leaf to Michael Kenna's name. The consistent texture of the work - which Michael Kenna is known for - is reflected in the quality of the book and the curation by Pretel's Yvonne Meyer-Lohr." -Digital Camera World
