Clark Worswick, author, curator of photography, Peabody Essex Museum Kenro Izu’s vision is an immensely subtle and multilayered creation totally outside of the ordinary photographic parameters of our time. About the Author Kenro Izu is one of the leading photographers of landscape imagery. His previous books are Still Life and Sacred Places. Japanese born, Izu lives and works in New York City. Book Description Timeless, limitless images--monumental 14 x 20 inch platinum photographs -- of one of the world’s most mystical places by a renowned artist. More than any other photographer, Izu has made over thirty visits to the sacred Cambodian site of Angkor Wat. And, like the makers of the sacred image of Buddha, who utter three prayers for each stroke of the carving tool, Izu himself considers the act of picture-making a type of divine practice. His photographs capture essence and light. Of his famous photograph of Tibet's Kailash in which the snowy peak is seen in otherworldly light, he recently said the image was a ""gift from God."" The photos are accompanied by the poetry of Helen Ibbitson Jessup, inspired by Izu’s work.
