Internationally renowned photographer Michael Kahn will be showing a selection of new J Class images, alongside classic sailing and seascape silver gelatin photographs at the Sheldon Gallery of Fine Art, located at 59 America's Cup Avenue in Newport RI.

With his 1950’s camera, Michael travels extensively to photograph the world’s finest boats and pristine seascapes. He collects his images on traditional black and white film and produces luminous silver gelatin prints in his darkroom. Each fine print is warmly toned, signed, numbered in a limited edition and finished to museum standards. With a distinctive sense of composition and attention to tonal relationships, the emotional force exhibited in Michael's photographs has allowed him to be one of the most memorable photographers of our time. Michael’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. His photographs are collected in two beautiful coffee-table books: Over the Dunes (2015), and The Spirit of Sailing (2004).

The exhibition runs from Tuesday August 22nd through Sunday August 27th, 2017. There will be a reception and book signing with Michael on Wednesday August 23rd from 5-8pm.
