Kenna has more than mastered the technical aspects of night photography. His photographs are well crafted, beautiful images which both engage and challenge the viewer with their poetic sensuality and psychological tension. Through his photographs, Kenna shows us locations that may be familiar by day and transforms them into evocative and mysterious places.
Michael Kenna is cool.
My wish is to act as a catalyst, a medium, for a viewer’s imagination. I expect a viewer to enter into the picture and react with the environment that is found there. The image can then be completed in the viewer’s own mind. I suppose that I photograph empty stage sets where we all have the potential to create our own stories. I consider this a form of interactive art.
