27th June – 15th July
In June this year, Beetles + Huxley Gallery will present two new series of works, Confessionals and Abruzzo by internationally acclaimed photographer Michael Kenna. Confessionals is a departure from the landscape work for which Kenna has become known and is the culmination of over 10-years work, travelling through Reggio Emilia, a city in northern Italy, to document hundreds of Catholic confessional booths. These will be shown alongside new photographs of the Abruzzo landscape from his new book, published by Nazraeli Press. In some places, the land is exceedingly wild and mountainous, whereas in others, it is quite domestic and pastoral. Hill towns, castles and churches proliferate the landscape.
