Dear friend,
I thought you may want to join Kenro’s talk at the Rubin Museum of Art on Wedensday, May 12th.
For those who are not in NYC, I’m sending this for your information in case you have friends who may be interested.
Hope to see you there!



KENRO IZU: A thirty-year retrospective

Wednesday, May 12, 7 p.m.  $15*

*includes admission to the museum’s exhibitions beforehand

In this richly illustrated talk, Kenro Izu talks about his life’s work: the renowned series “Sacred Places,” which includes work from holy sites in Syria, Jordan, England, Scotland, Mexico, Easter Island and, more recently, Buddhist and Hindu sites in India, Cambodia, Burma, Vietnam, Indonesia, and China.

Using a custom-made, 300-pound camera, Izu creates negatives that are 14 inches high by 20 inches wide. The resulting platinum palladium prints are widely recognized as being among the most beautiful prints in the history of the medium. Kenro Izu’s Thirty Year Retrospective, a stunning collection of the artist’s most powerful work to date marks the thirtieth year of the ongoing “Sacred Places” series. This gorgeous new monograph published by Nazraeli Press comprises some 100 plates, beautifully printed in duotone on matt art paper and bound in Japanese cloth and will be on sale at the book signing following the talk. This is Kenro Izu’s third talk at the museum.

His work has been the subject of two exhibitions here, the most recent being Bhutan: The Sacred Within (2007).
