마이클 케나 Michael Kenna


 영국 출신의 사진작가 마이클 케나는 다양한 풍경들을 통해 사람과 주변 환경이 어떻게 영향을 주고 받는지를 고민해왔다. 그는 암실에서 수작업으로 장시간 작업해야 하는 전통적인 흑백 은염 인화 방식을 아직도 고수한다. 작가는 이러한 아날로그 작업 방식이 자신의 작품을 결정짓는 창작의 핵심적인 요소임을 짚으며 “나는 아날로그적인 과정이 주는 한계와 느림을 통해 기다림을 배울 수 있다는 것에 감사하며 이러한 과정은 나에게 예술가로서의 신념과도 같은 것이다”라고 말한다.


한국에서는2007년 강원도 삼척의 솔섬을 촬영하여 사라질 위기에 처한 소나무 숲을 보존하는데 그의 사진 한 장이 큰 역할을 했다. 이는 인간의 개발의지보다 더 중요한 예술적 자산의 가치에 대해 생각해 볼 기회를 던져준 바 있다.


마이클 케나는 2000년 프랑스 정부로부터 슈발리에 문화예술 공로 훈장을 받았으며, 스페인, 미국 등에서도 예술상을 수상하였다. 2016년 일본에서 외국작가로는 처음으로 최고 사진작가 상을 수여하는 영광을 얻었다. 45년간 세계 각지의 600개가 넘는 화랑과 미술관에서 전시회를 가졌으며, 프랑스 국립 현대미술관을 비롯해 도쿄 사진 미술관, 샌프란시스코 현대 미술관, LA 현대미술관, 워싱턴 국립미술관, 상해 국립 미술관, 런던 빅토리아 알버트 미술관 그리고 한국의 국립현대미술관 미술은행 등에 그의 작품들이 영구 소장되어 있다.
