Robert Mann Gallery is now exhibiting Oh The Place You’ll Go!, an exploration of the wonderful wide world captured by Michael Kennaʼs prodigious lens. As one of the most widely exhibited and beloved photographers working today, Michael Kenna has his work internationally exhibited and collected.
From China to France to New Zealand, Michael Kenna has sought out the earthʼs splendid and sublime. In his intimate portraits of place, the artistʼs keen sense of light, form, and balance transcend the “where” and “what” and invite us into moments of permeating tranquility, commanding grandeur, or effervescent whimsy.

The exhibition in Robert Mann Gallery will feature a number of recent photographs spanning the breadth of the nationʼs iconic and lesser-known sites. The Louvre glows luminescent and majestic across the Seine, a disconnected dock in Nice floats hauntingly from its foggy moor, and a filigree of vines envelop an old country home.
