WOW. What a body of work. All beautiful, haunting. Probably shot on film, hmm? I wonder how long it's taken him to collect this portfolio from around the globe. One dog, one spider, a handful of birds, an army of clay soldiers and the assorted stone statues, but not one living person, even on the Brooklyn Bridge. Mr. Kenna seems to be a man who enjoys his solitude.

Hmmm, does look "filmy" I guess. But anything can be emulated pretty well these days, so I dunno.

Film yes, mostly with a Hass. A link to a short video on how he works.

The images in the links are sub-par and Mr. Kenna's books are a treasure to hold and view. Great man and be sure to read up on him.
