HUANGSHAN is the name given to a whole range of mountains in Anhui province in eastern China. Also called Yellow Mountain, the range is particularly known for its uniquely-shaped granite peaks, ubiquitous pine trees that literally grow out of the rock faces, and the ever changing configurations of flowing clouds as seen from above. Huangshan has been a source of inspiration and a muse for Chinese painters and poets throughout history. It continues to inspire artists today, including Michael Kenna. These 46 photographs, which Kenna made over a period of three years, capture both the sublimity and grandeur of these peaks, and quietly reflect on our human interaction with nature. Kenna has written a brief introduction which describes some of his experiences on Huangshan. Beautifully printed in special Daido black ink on uncoated paper, Huangshan is published in an edition of 1,000 slipcased copies.
