1st edition / 1st printing of this now-classic book. Michael Kenna’s photographs have long inspired words such as mysterious, elegant, and hauntingly beautiful – adjectives that likewise describe the Japanese landscape. The photographs in Kenna’s important 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. 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 and presented in a Japanese folding slipcase. Text in Japanese and English by Kotaro Iizawa. Rare.
