Beautiful b&w images of difficult-to-reach spiritual places reflect the dedicated soul of photographer Izu, who traveled to these places with a specially made large-format camera that weighs 300 pounds. He used the camera to make 14x20 contact platinum/palladium prints of places of worship as diverse as Easter Island, Teotihuacßn, Angkor Wat, Stonehenge, the monuments of the Chinese Silk Road, and the caves of Ajanta, among other sites. The great 19th-century photographs of Asia were part of his inspiration, but Izu's work is uniquely his own. An essay by photographic historian Clark Worswick provides an overview of his life and work. The large format of the book (12.25x10.5) allows for sumptuous presentation of the images. Annotation c.
