Michael KennaNorthern England (1983 - 1986)

68.00 EUROS

“This book is a first vignette in Michael Kenna’s vast photographic odyssey. Some of these photographs, made nearly forty years ago, are familiar, even famous, but many have never been seen before. They have been put on hold, stored in a series of negative files. Normally, Kenna travels extensively and is unable to print his vast collection of negatives. It took the Covid pandemic and the lockdown for him to dig into his archives, rediscover these long-forgotten images and print them in his darkroom. These photographs reveal a North of England of Kenna’s youth that, for the most part, no longer exists.”

Kenna’s early photographs of England launched his career and brought him international acclaim; yet it was only last year, in 2020, that he revisited this particular body of work to find many unprinted images. These discoveries are exquisitely presented in this important new monograph from Nazraeli Press, Northern England 1983-1986.

Beautifully printed on natural-textured art paper, accompanied by an introductory text by Dr. Ian B Glover, the seventy-five plates are reproduced in four-color process and bound in period-reminiscent cotton cloth-covered boards.
