Meeting Highlights

January 12th, 7:00pm Hybrid ZOOM/in-person meeting
Michael Kenna,
presentation by Jon Meyer

Michael Kenna is a British born, American fine art landscape photographer. He works almost exclusively in medium format, film, and monochrome, printing his own images in the darkroom. There are many terms that could be applied to his work: pictorialist, minimalist, wabi-sabi, zen, haiku, etc. He has, for example, been called an “anachronistic contemporary of the pictorialists.” While no one set of descriptors is adequate to the breadth of his work, he has a distinctive style which strives to be enigmatic: evocative rather than informative and suggestive rather than descriptive. He has photographed around the world, but his main efforts have been in France and in Japan. The presentation will emphasize his photographic influences, relationship to the pictorialists, photographic philosophy, and French and Japanese work.


January 26th, Ranjan Ramchandani
On Safari with an Olympus Visionary

He is a Singapore based, published photographer focusing on travel and wildlife. A graduate of the New York Institute of Photography, he has honed his skills through photography expeditions around the globe with an emphasis on major wildlife destinations. Ranjan is Asia/Africa Editor for The Wild Lens.
