Shinan, an archipelago of 1,004 exquisite and unspoiled islands situated in the South West of Korea, is also known as "The Island of Angels". Michael Kenna photographed there over a period of two years. The resulting monograph, "Shinan", is comprised of sixty-two black and white images in which the artist emphasizes suggestion rather than description; sparce and graphic elements evoke a whole world. Elegently printed with "Daido black" ink and tinted spot varnish on Japanese matte art paper, the first printing is limited to 3,000 slipcased copies.
