Michael Kenna – Robert Mann Gallery

When looking at the artist’s oeuvre and the myriad of subjects therein, it is not difficult to realize the acumen of Michael Kenna.

Yet what happens in those rare situations when a single photographer is responsible for scores of iconic images? This question is explored by the Halsman: Facets and Facets exhibition. Philippe Halsman (b. Riga, 1906; d. New…
