The stunning black and white landscapes from Michael Kenna

Because many of my friends are going on holidays today, I wanted to share the black and white landscapes from Michael Kenna.
This English photographer magnify each place, through a clever and unusual squared framing (especially before Instagram) with a very long exposure sometimes up to 10 hours. The result is stunning and we can only but admire his talent which transform a ‘boring’ road in the French country side in a hauntingly beautiful one…
