“KENRO IZU is a well-known and collected fine art photographer. His gorgeous books are examples to all landscape photographers. Working with very large format cameras, in 1993, with his first visit to Cambodia, he began his important series, The Sacred Places Of Asia. He has continued his exploration of the world’s sacred places in South America, Egypt, the Himalayas and most recently, India and Bhutan. 1995 Izu became deeply moved by his encounters with children disfigured by land mines, and, in a remarkable instance of advocacy through photography, founded a non-profit organization, Friends Without A Border, building Angkor Hospital For Children (AHC) in January 1999. Kenro Izu is still responsible for its operations.

In his daily life, Kenro Izu is a much-sought-after advertising photographer with over 25 year’s experience in New York City where he opened his studio in 1974. His specialties are photographing jewelry, watches and cosmetics. In his other life – Izu is a well-known and collected fine art photographer.

April 15: Paul Graham Artist’s Talk at the CCP Tucson

From the Center for Creative Photography website: 

Thursday, April 15, 5:30 p.m.

Contemporary artist Paul Graham (U.K., 1956) grew up looking at the work of Robert Frank, William Eggleston, and the photographers of the New Topographics movement. He was among the first to unite contemporary color photography with the classic genre of social documentary. In 2009, Graham exhibited his recent work a shimmer of possibility at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. That work reflects everyday moments of American lives and examines photography’s ability to compress or expand time.”
