Something I have become interested in learning more about is black and white contemporary landscape photography. I started to become interested in Michael Kenna because his photos are in black and white and they emphasize lighting more making it look really magical.
So far I have learned that Kenna doesn't have a preference to Night photography or Day photography. He prefers to find "timeless" imagery that can be taken at any time of the day because he feels that "confining [himself] to one particular area or one particular time period is... self limiting"

The information that I've been reading is from the organization dedicated to night photography, The Nocturnes, which was founded by Tim Baskerville.
