France encompasses work from these projects and many others.

It coincides with an exhibition of his Paris studies at Le Musée Carnavalet opening October 2014. Michael Kenna is widely considered to be the most influential landscape photographer of his generation. The subject of some 50 monographs, Kenna's work is included in the permanent collections of over 100 museums and institutions worldwide, and has been widely exhibited and written about internationally since the mid-1970s.

From the publisher: "'[Kenna] has been reflective when others have been militant, romantic when others have been skeptical. Such isolation can starve all but the most independent of talents, but for these it can provide a sanctuary where visions can develop undisturbed. Kenna is one of these. '--Joanna Pitman, The Times (London) Michael Kenna's photographs have long inspired words such as mysterious, elegant, and hauntingly beautiful--adjectives that likewise describe the Japanese landscape. The photographs in Kenna's important new monograph, Japan, are the result of an ideal pairing of artist and subject. Kenna has had a large following in Japan ever since his first exhibition there in 1987. His many subsequent exhibitions and publications in Japan have provided him with ample opportunities to visit and photograph. During the past several years, as this project began to take shape, Kenna's trips became more frequent and intense. The resulting images are stunning."
