Landscape in the Abstract

Vittorio Senna, Ansel Adams and a few others apart, I’m not big on landscapes. It’s such a familiar medium it’s very hard to make things seem different.

Which is why I admire and totally respect Michael Kenna. His black and white landscapes are instantly recognizable and instantly distinctive.

Kenna photographs at dawn or at night using exposures of up to 10 hours. Resulting in haunting ethereal images like these.
