The 21st publication in the Nazraeli Press One Picture Book series. From the publisher: "Michael Kenna's humorous and very touching One Picture Book takes the form of a photographically-illustrated memoir of his childhood studies at Upholland College in England, where he studied to become a Catholic priest. Boarding School offers a rare glimpse into the personal side of this internationally-known but very private artist. It culminates with an original signed print made from an early (ca 1965) negative."
