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; sparse 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.
