Situated in the South Pacific, Easter Island is more than 2,000 miles from the nearest population centers, making it one of the most isolated places on earth. Best known for the giant stone monoliths, or Moai, dotting its coastline, the island was named by Admiral Roggeveen, who chanced upon the triangle of volcanic rock on Easter Sunday in the year 1772. Michael Kenna has photographed Easter Island over a period of two years, creating a powerful body of work which pays homage to the beauty of the island and the continuing mystery of its past. Kenna selected forty-four images from this project for publication in Easter Island.
