Kenro IZU Solo Exhibition
by 1839 Contemporary Gallery
Location: 1839 Contemporary Gallery
Artist(s): Kenro IZU
Date: 16 Oct - 29 Nov 2015

Photographer Kenro Izu was born in Osaka, Japan in 1949 and Studied at Nihon University, College of Arts in Tokyo. He has spent his life committed to photography and reviving the lost art of the platinum/palladium print. Kenro Izu’s work is widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Japan, and is in the collections of The Boston Museum of Fine Arts, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and many other private collections.

Kenro Izu’s technique is the platinum-palladium prints. The platinum printing process requires a contact printing process which means a negative and a print will be the same size.  The print cannot be enlarged. Thus all the exhibited prints at 1839 Contemporary Gallery are made by 14×20 inch print which is same size of 14×20 inch negative using his custom 14×20 view camera.

Izu has been the recipient of the Catskill Center for Photography Fellowship in 1992, a NEA grant in 1984, the New York Foundation for Arts grant in 1985, the Lou Stouman Award in 1999, a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2001, the Vision Award from the Center for Photography at Woodstock in 2005 and a Lucie Award in 2007.
