Michael’s photographs are islands of serenity and silence in a loud and chaotic world. They speak not only of the mystery of this world, but also the human condition of loneliness and isolation, of love and enchantment. His prints are exquisitely seductive, spiritual experiences, akin to poetry or music.
Ruth Bernhard

This publication brings together a twenty-year body of photographic work. It is rich in its imagery and provocative in its facility. The range of Kenna’s sensuous imagery is marvelous, and because of this consistent honest sensuousness, the abstract romanticism is at no point dehumanized or out of character with the pictorial situation.
Peter C. Bunnell
