IZIMA KAORU, Landscapes with a Corpse

Born in 1954 in Kyoto the Japanese photographer, Izima Kaoru, has been showing his artistic work since the late 70s in various international exhibitions and museums. He was made famous by his photo spread “Landscape with a corpse”, on which he worked between 1993 and 2008.
In “Landscapes with a corpse” Kaoru gathered pictures of Japanese film divas and models and European actresses, picturesquely arranged, in eternal youth and in robes by Prada, Gucci or Dior. Thereby the artist’s visual references stretches from traditional Japanese colour woodcut to Pop art – the result is always that of melancholic beauty and sadness.
