Sacred Places: A Photo Journey II

For decades, acclaimed Japanese photographer Kenro Izu (b. 1949) has travelled the world to capture timeless images of sacred places in their natural settings – from Stonehenge in England, to Angkor Wat in Cambodia and the mysterious Callanish standing stones of Scotland. His works are exhibited in major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Boston Museum of Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. Kenzo also founded Friends Without a Border – an organization devoted to raising funds for children’s hospitals in Cambodia. Scroll down the photo gallery to see monochrome images of sacred stone monuments in Kenzo’s portfolio. You would want to take your time with each photo, for they are images that truly defy simple description.
