The Hot Ticket: Michael Kenna’s China
Overwhelmed by the stress and hurry of daily life? Seek solace in landscape photographer Michael Kenna’s breathtakingly serene exhibition, China, at Hong Kong’s AO Vertical Art Space.
One of today’s leading landscape photographers, Michael Kenna has amassed the body of work that constitutes China throughout the past eight years, capturing the inner essence of the country’s natural beauty in each image.
Always monochrome and shot using long time exposures, Kenna’s photographs reveal a focus on linearity and abstract forms that relay a sense of mystery and prompt personal contemplation, which is emphasised by the spiraling hang of the AO Vertical Art Space. A source of calm amid the hustle and bustle of Chain Wan in Hong Kong’s Eastern District.
China runs until Saturday 30th August at AO Vertical Art Space, Hong Kong.
