Kenro Izu (b.1949) is a photographer originally from Osake, Japan. From 1969 to 1970, he studied photography at Nihon University, College of Arts, in Tokyo, Japan. In 1970, he relocated to New York, NY, and began working as a commercial photographer. Shortly after this, he was introduced to Francis Frith’s 19th-century photographs of Egypt. This discovery prompted him to travel to Egypt and take photographs of the pyramids, a trip that inspired all of his subsequent work. He has traveled all over the world, capturing the macro and micro details of exotic lands.
