Michael Kenna's photographs have long inspired words such as elegant, mysterious, and hauntingly beautiful - these same words can be used to describe the Japanese landscape. The photographs in Kenna's important new monograph, Japan, are the result of an ideal pairing of artist and subject. Kenna has had a large following in Japan ever since his first exhibition there in 1987. His many subsequent exhibitions and publications in Japan have provided him with ample opportunities to visit and photograph. During the past several years, as this project began to take shape, Kenna's trips became more frequent and intense. The resulting images are stunning.

Superbly printed in tritone, Japan is hardbound in red cloth (looks like silk) and presented in a black Japanese folding slipcase with Japanese characters embossed on the front. This publication coincided with a series of exhibitions in the US and Japan.
