    Kenro Izu

    I just saw an exhibition of his platinum/palladium 14x20 inch contact prints at the Rubin Museum of Art (its in NYC) and it was incredible! There is just an amazing confluence of intense location (Butan), sublime vision, and great craftsmanship. If your in New York I highly recommend it, this is one of the best exhibitions I have ever seen and i definitely will be going back.

    The NY Times has a Review here I'll probably have to wait for the book Kenro Izu: Bhutan .

    When I saw this work in Santa Fe it was displayed w/o glass. What a difference. The lack of glass allowed every little nuance of tone to be seen clearly. It is marvelous work, by the most dedicated photographer I ever met.

    this is off-topic, but at first I thought this thread was about "Dersu Uzala"...an excellent film:

    I'll clean my glasses while you all watch the movie

    I love the part in the review where they state he is carrying a 300 lb camera. Kenro needs to talk to Richard Ritter about a new ULF camera. A 300 lb 14x20 is a wee bit heavy.

    I'm sure 30-40 pounds is more like. I think his custom built 14x20 was built by the late Jack Deardorff. I'm not exactly sure though so don't hold me to it. My previous post was just a feeble attempt at a little humor. I've been shooting ULF for a few years now so I'm pretty up on the logistics involved with using one in the field. Of course a 300 lb camera sounds so much more dramatic in the review. Maybe the author was weighing the camera and the Yak that was carrying it.

    Izu's website lists the Bhutan book as available in 2007. I've done a search for it (including Nazraeli site), but appears currently unavailable online. His site does list Detroit & Washington, DC for next year exhibits.

    Saw some of his work in London and was highly impressed.
