Japan: A Love Story


Published to coincide with a major 2024 traveling exhibition in Tokyo, Los Angeles and London, this gorgeous new monograph presents 100 of Michael Kenna’s most iconic photographs of the Japanese landscape, many published here for the first time. A perfect pairing of artist and subject, these photographs of Japan comprise perhaps Kenna’s best known body of work and have been the subject of countless exhibitions throughout the world.

Michael Kenna first visited Japan in 1987 on the event of his inaugural exhibition there, and he has returned dozens of times and made thousands of photographs throughout the country’s vast and incredibly varied landscape. Japan: A Love Story is beautifully printed in duotone on natural coated art paper and quarter bound in linen and silk.

Photographs & Stories


In celebration of Michael Kenna’s fiftieth year as a photographer, we are thrilled to announce the publication of Michael Kenna: Photographs and Stories. This gorgeous monograph, beautifully printed on Japanese Kasadaka paper and bound in custom deep blue cloth, was published in association with the Center for Photographic Art to coincide with a traveling exhibition which opened at their historic Carmel, California exhibition space in November 2023.

Kenna has selected one image for each year beginning 1973, when he enrolled in the Banbury School of Art, and for each subsequent year. Following the “Photographs” section is “Stories,” in which Kenna gives context to each image and considers how it connected to his own life at the time.
