Sixty-six photographs by Michael Kenna depict nature and the manmade from countries around the world. A haiku is a simple Japanese poem reduced to three lines that address impressions of nature. Appreciative of Japanese culture, acclaimed photographer Michael Kenna photographs landscapes and familiar cities through a simplified lens. Finding dramatic angles, evocative atmosphere and times of day, Kenna’s lyrical images express a unique response to Paris, rural Ireland, and much more—a Zen-like beauty emerges. In 2013, these photographs were gifted to the Harn Museum from a Gainesville family.
