Kenro Izu is a Japanese photographer. Born in Tokyo in 1949, he has lived in New York since 1974. During a trip to Egypt in that same year, his encounter with the Great Pyramid of Giza led him to take an interest in sacred places across the world.
I want to show things you might not see in normal life. I make normal things appear special. I want people to look at life in a new and different way, but it always has to be based on reality. It's important that you don't pass judgement, and leave space for interpretation. For example, in the Almerisa series, the young Bosnian refugee, whose portrait I took for the first time in the early 1990s, it was important for me not to show any specific details of her surroundings such as the décor of the apartment.

Está claro que la fotografía avanza hacia lo desconocido y que hay mucha gente intentando adivinar por medio de webs, exposiciones o encuestas que será lo próximo. Pero creo que para jugar a ser adivino es mucho más útil e interesante analizar primero qué es lo que está pasando ahora, ya que entiendo que la mejor manera de conocer el futuro siempre pasa por ser conscientes del presente.
The Japanese photographer perhaps best known for shooting at night and on the street is Daido Moriyama, so it’s appropriate that Takehiko Nakafuji studied under him. Nakafuji recently published a two-volume book of photographs of nocturnal Tokyo called Night Crawler, the first volume containing images taken in 1995 and the second images taken in 2010. The combination shows changes in both the city and the man, evoking by turns the restless excitement and raffish charm of Tokyo’s underbelly, and a lonely, sombre place.
“The photograph reflects, every streetlight a reminder. Nightswimming deserves a quiet night.” These lyrics, from R.E.M.’s “Nightswimming” played a major part in Jeremy and Claire Weiss’ spread for Monster Children magazine.
