Shinan.
Photographs by Michael Kenna.
Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2013. 88 pp., 68 duotone illustrations, 12x13".

Publisher's Description
Shinan, an archipelago of 1,004 exquisite and unspoiled islands situated in the South West of Korea, is also known as “The Island of Angels”. Michael Kenna photographed there over a period of two years. The resulting monograph, “Shinan”, is comprised of sixty-two black and white images in which the artist emphasizes suggestion rather than description; sparce and graphic elements evoke a whole world. Elegantly printed with our special Daido black ink and tinted spot varnish on Japanese matte art paper, this first printing of Shinan is limited to 3,000 slipcased copies. A special edition of 250 signed and numbered copies, presented in a custom clamshell box, is also available. “Breathtakingly beautiful” – it sounds like a cliché, but the phrase encapsulates the feeling that echoed in my mind the moment I saw Michael Kenna’s work... It is as if Mother Nature is trying to show off her creation through the medium of these images. – Lee Chuyoung, Curator of National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea.
