Using a turn of the century technique, photographer Kenro Izu takes platinum palladium prints with a custom built camera that produces 14 x 20-inch negatives. Born in Japan, but now a New York resident, Izu has work in such collections as the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. His work consists of various subject matter including flowers, the human form, ancient monuments, and foreign cities. The Sackler Gallery, part of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, will have an exhibition of Izu’s photographs in 2002
