“Nude/scapes” is dialogue between Kenna’s series Forms of Japan and Rafu. Where the body and the silhouettes created by nature dialogue in an exquisite and harmonious manner. The union of both lines of work invite to observe carefully and generate an ambiance of beauty and serenity with the power of changing the imaginary through softness, strength, depth, meditative and contemplative qualities that his photographs embrace. Particularly, the blending of bodies and landscapes poetically exemplify Kenna’s introspective personality trait.
