Kenro Izu (born 1949) is a Japanese-born photographer based in the USA. After moving to the United States in 1972, he spent two years working as a photo assistant in New York City and eventually established his own studio, specializing in still life photography. Since 1979, in addition to his well established commercial work, Kenro began a serious professional commitment to fine art photography, traveling abroad to capture the sacred ancient stone monuments in their natural settings. He has traveled and documented Egypt, Syria, Jordan, England, Scotland, Mexico, France and Easter Island (Chile). He has also focused on Buddhism and Hindu monuments in South East Asia: Cambodia, Burma, Indonesia, Vietnam and India. He captures profound beauty with natural states of decay. Izu founded Friends Without a Border, an organization devoted to raising funds for children’s hospitals in Cambodia. As stated in the book, "An estimated eight million land mines have been planted in Cambodia since the 1940s. Forty thousand civilians [many of them children] have been injured or killed...Also, due to insufficient medical facilities, there are victims of pediatric diseases which are obsolete in Japan and most Western countries. Friends Without A Border is building the Angkor Clinic for Children to provide much needed free aid to these injured and sick children."
