About Book
The images of the Japanese photographer accompany the reader on a fascinating trip around the world through the most important religious centers. The sophisticated art of Kenro Izu (Osaka, 1949) is the focal point of a volume devoted entirely to the photographer’s long exploration of the world’s most important holy places, from Cambodia, India, and Tibet to Indonesia, Egypt, and Syria. Fascinated by the sublime beauty of ancient remains, he returns to the styles and printing techniques of 19th-century photography, as they are best able to capture the mystical atmosphere of the places examined.
About Author
Since 1979, Kenro Izu has traveled the world photographing its sacred places. His first visit to Cambodia in 1993 to photograph a series of monuments in Angkor set him on a path to depict the sacred places and people of Asia, one that he continues to this day. He has since created major bodies of work focused on Cambodia, Nepal, Bhutan, and most recently, India. His photographs have been published in five books including Kenro Izu: 30 Year Retrospective (2010) and can be found in museum collections including those of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; and the J. Paul Getty Museum, Malibu.
