Michael Kenna Photography
Michael Kenna's stark, serene, and mysterious black-and-white photographs of the natural landscape have been a continual source of inspiration for me.

Founded just after World War II by Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, Magnum is an agency that still represents some of the world's finest documentary photographers. Its rich archive of imagery from world events stretching back to the Spanish Civil War provides a fascinating visual experience.
