NEW YORK, NY.- Von Lintel Gallery presents One Sun, an exhibition of new work by Japanese photographer Izima Kaoru. After fifteen years of exploring the macabre in his ongoing series Landscapes with a Corpse, Izima Kaoru looked to spirituality to ease his fear of death. Dissatisfied with what organized religion had to offer, he found his comfort in the natural world. The sun and its constancy in our existence proved to be his solace and inspiration. Traveling the world, Kaoru tracked the path of the sun from sunrise to sunset on a single day in a given location. Using a fisheye lens and long exposure, he left his shutter open from dawn to dusk, capturing 360 degree views of the sun’s progress as it made its way across the sky. The large-scale photographs in Izima Kaoru’s new series are unusual in format. They are cut round and embedded in a circular frame, echoing the celestial orb for which the series One Sun is named. Ea
