Kenro Izu first learned how to make his stunning platinum prints at a Center workshop with Wendy Holmes. He has since gone on to be one of the most elegant photographers of our time and is the recipient of a 2002 Guggenheim award. He exhibits at the Howard Greenberg Gallery in NYC. CPW has showed his work numerous times – his first solo was in 1985 – and recognized his talent early on with the very first Photographers’ Fund Fellowship in 1980. Kenro continues to be an important part of the Center’s constellation – featured in articles in the PQ, conducting workshops, the host of a CPW New York City Studio Tour in 1999, and a former member of the Board. His dedication to the service field is evidenced by his creation of his own not-for-profit, Friends Without a Border.
