Michael Kenna is sort of local to Oxford, having taught in Banbury so not quite a home town boy but one of the most experienced black and white photographers still active. This really illuminating interview is worth your time.
“Michael Kenna’s beautiful black-and-white images have been described as haunting, minimalist and ethereal. And by his admission, he chooses to examine one or two elements in a scene, “instead of describing everything that’s going on.” His unique approach to the environment results in simple but powerful photos of architecture, landscapes and the sea.”
