Fresh from the Kenna Factory

CEG is currently exhibiting 45 Michael Kenna photographs on view until July 6, 2013.  Often visitors to the gallery will comment on Michael’s fine printing and the fact that he is still working with film, so we thought it would be great to sneak-a-peek behind the darkroom curtain and show you some images of Michael’s studio. We asked his long time assistant, Mark Silva, to send us some snapshots of Michael’s darkroom and promptly he responded – the subject of his e-mail read, “Fresh from the Kenna Factory”.
