East Coast Atlantic Beaches features over 80 museum-quality photographs of lush and serene seascape scenes from world-renowned black-and-white photographer Michael Kahn. These warmly toned black-and-white seaside photographs range from Georgia to Maine, showcasing the beauty of the sand and the sea that speaks to so many of us. Michael grew up spending summer vacations on these Atlantic beaches, and his personal connection to the landscape shines through each minute detail. “Ever since I can remember,” Michael says, “I have been infatuated with the sea. I swam, sailed, fished, and collected shells and sharks teeth that had washed up on the sand. I hid in the dunes and marveled at the treasures the water and wind revealed, then covered again.” These luminous silver gelatin prints, developed in Michael’s darkroom, masterfully capture the majestic beauty of these beaches.

Michael Kahn learned traditional photography in a portrait studio where they used Hasselblad cameras with a square 6x6 cm film format. Here, Michael received hands-on training in film handling and black-and-white printmaking. Michael continued on in advertising, product, and editorial photography. In the mid-1990s, Michael took his first sailing photograph of a small boat in the fog on a lake in the Adirondacks, thus beginning his nautical photography career. Making the decision to stay with his film cameras instead of going with the new trends in digital equipment, he continues to make handmade photographs in his darkroom. Michael continues to travel the world, and his work is widely featured in magazines, museums, corporate and private collections, and fine-art galleries. Michael loves everything about nature and is interested in preservation. His other books are Brandywine, The Spirit of Sailing, and Over the Dunes. www.michaelkahn.com.
