Wasn't some of Kenna's earlier work done on 35mm? Seems to me I recall the framing/cropping of some ca. '80s pictures looked more like 35mm dimensions.
I think he worked with Nikons and then moved up to Hasselblads in the 90's. Kenna has also done a bit of advertising as well.
And he has a new book coming out in January I believe. I know that photo-eye is taking orders for it. His books sell out super fast and increase in value almost immediately.

also a new book by Hoflehner:
"Some of these photographs are so surreal that they don't seem like they were taken in this dimension."
Jeez... Nikons, Hasselblads... I know all you guys know better (and I am a gear head myself - so I am always curious what camera was used, etc)), but if someone didn't know... given the title of the thread, and the repeated "he used brand X" comments, you would think IT(the gear) made the images!
The real reason for my post: where on the web site does it actually go into techniques? I would like to know... but can't find it.
I believe most of the equipment information comes out of his interviews. If you like Kenna (I do) they are an interesting look into his "style".

Josef Hoflehner's photographs have pretty unusual names.
yes very creative titles, but like them.... think different. "Race with the Devil"

He adds and subtracts to the image as he feels necessary. Last I heard he then takes the file to a service bureau and has them output from a Lightjet style machine. The images are in the neighborhood of 36 inches square. He may have switched to an Epson 9500 I just can't remember though. When he shoots the water stuff he likes to use very dark neutral density filters so the water smoothes out like you see in the gallery you pointed to here.

Reason: add info
The Josef Hoflehner's photographs are named after heavy metal songs from Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.
