Photographer Kenro Izu became fascinated by pears when he encountered them for the first time in New York. He shot them on a large format 8×10 inch camera and exhibited photographs finished using the classic technique of platinum printing.
The subject of pears dates back to fall of 1990, but this is the first time he has shot them again in over 20 years.
We are pleased to present over 30 pieces of prints made in Cyanotype (blue) and platinum palladium by KENRO IZU. All prints involve hand-painting emulsion onto the paper in darkness prior to exposure.
Meanwhile we also offer the limited of signed photo books with special price for the new title “SEDUCTION” which include Flora, Body, BLUE and Orchard series and those studio photographs from 90’s to 2017.
