Item #14863 SACRED PLACES. Kenro Izu.


Santa Fe: Arena, 2001. First edition. Hardcover. Essay by Clark Worswick. This work springs from the artist's careful scrutiny of the genre of great nineteenth-century "exotic" photographs of Asia, the work that flourished from the banks of the Nile and Cairo to the quayside of Yokohama between 1859 and 1879. Like his nineteenth-century predecessors, Izu utilizes large-format cameras, typically a massive 14-by-20-inch view camera. But Izu is a twenty-first century photographer, who borrows, reshapes, and recasts the imperatives of the nineteenth century and modernism for his own unique imagery. His vision is an immensely subtle and multilayered creation. It is a vision totally outside of the ordinary photographic parameters of our time. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #14863
