About Kenro Izu: A Thirty Year Retrospective
Kenro Izu moved to New York City in the early 1970s, but was originally born in Japan. As a result, he quickly made a name for himself as a master of still life photography. A chance viewing of the mammoth plate photographs by the Victorian photographer Francis Frith led Izu to travel to Egypt in 1979. Here he made images of the pyramids and other sacred places. Thus began the his famous series Sacred Places, which includes work from holy sites from all across the globe. Using a custom-made, 300-pound camera, Izu creates negatives that are 14 inches high by 20 inches wide. Consequently, the resulting platinum palladium prints are widely recognized as being among the most astounding prints in the history of the medium.
To celebrate the thirtieth year of the ongoing Sacred Places series, we are proud to present Kenro Izu’s Thirty Year Retrospective, a stunning collection of the artist’s most powerful work to date. This gorgeous new monograph comprises some 100 plates, beautifully printed in duotone on matt art paper and bound in Japanese cloth. – Nazraeli Press
