From the publisher,
"In Kenna's masterful photographs illustrating Huangshan, ethereal mists run like rivers haunting the mountains and valleys of one of China¿s most picturesque lands. Kenna, one of the world¿s greatest art photographers and the finest living master of landscape photography, has indeed captured the very essence of Huangshan more perfectly than it has ever been captured before. Twelve hand coated, fully signed platinum prints are accompanied by some of the greatest masterpieces of Chinese poetry, including many by famed mountain poet Han Shan (Cold Mountain), all of which are translated by Stanton Hager, the finest and most poetic translator of T¿ang poetry."
