Michael Kenna : landscape moments at Galerie Bernheimer in Munich and book signing on 11 May

His pictures are usually realised at twilight or at night, when the many lights that surround us dominate our mood. Venice has enchanted him. The same goes for Japan and India and the Pyramids in Cairo. Michael Kenna photographs landscapes in a clear and calming style. And always with a touch of mysticism.

He sees his calling as a photographer to explore and capture. A manual Hasselblad camera is his constant companion, the technique slow and precise, the exposure times often lengthy. Kenna sees the actual act of taking a photograph as more important than the finished picture.

The Bibliothèque National de France dedicated a retrospective to him last year. His mainly black/white photographs can be found in countless public collections. These include the Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Gallery in London and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.

Bernheimer Fine Art Photography exclusively represents Michael Kenna in Germany and presents a collection of his works until the end of May. On 11 May, the artist will hold a book signing at the gallery
