“Bhutan: The Sacred Within”
Photography by Kenro Izu
Published by Nazraeli Press, Portland, OR, 2007
First Edition, First Printing
Offered here SIGNED by the Artist and in AS NEW condition Is Kenro Izu’s “Bhutan: The Sacred Within,” published in 2007 by Nazraeli Press. It is one of the most spectacular photography books to come along in a very long time. Izu's dedication to the Art of photography is only surpassed by the incredibly beautiful images he produces on his treks through the mountains, carrying his 300 pound self-made camera. "Bhutan" is beautiful in its imagery, as well as the book which holds it. Adorned with stunning orange silk covers, the 14 x 17 inch frame allows for large plates, which Izu masterfully fills with intricate detail. Not an spot is wasted. There is also a section entitled “Notes to the Plates” which contains details of where and when these incredible images were captured. With only 1,000 copies made available, this book is already a collectible for Izu enthusiasts, and those who appreciate magnificent photography. This Project was published to coincide with an exhibition by the same name at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City.
From the Publisher: “Kenro Izu has spent much of his career traveling the world, seeking the sacred and spiritual in landscapes and the people who inhabit them, and attempting to capture the moments in which he senses these qualities are revealed. The photographs in Bhutan: The Sacred Within reflect Izu’s exploration of a country that he visited repeatedly over a period of six years (2002-2007) and in which he found “a wealth of spiritual value.” The people of Bhutan are heirs to an unbroken tradition of Buddhist government and religion. The kingdom is known for its measurement of national success, not in terms of the Gross National Product but rather in the Gross National Happiness of its people, a concept based on the Buddhist idea that happiness is an individual and inner pursuit. The Bhutanese government sees it as its responsibility to create the right environment for its citizens to seek happiness. Combining an artist’s vision with exquisite sensitivity to the historical craft of photography, Izu creates work that brings us closer to a country on the brink of modernity that seeks to maintain traditions.”
This title is offered in AS NEW condition, SIGNED by Kenro Izu. It is a hardcover book with cloth boards and a tipped-in cover image. The book measures 14 x 17 inches, and contains 96 pages with 72 duotone images.
