Rinko Kawauchi: Illuminance

Leave a comment
Color, Contemporary, Photobook

Illuminance is a book by Rinko Kawauchi, one of Japan’s most popular female photographers today.


A distinctive trait of her work lies both in the sequence and the juxtaposition of her images. This editing, Rinko Kawauchi says, “differentiates between a photograph and an artwork. Seeing two images next to each other opens up the imagination and gives birth to something else. Flipping through the pages of the book, it can arouse feelings of excitement, sadness, or happiness—things that are hard [for me] to do with words.” (http://lightbox.time.com/2011/04/11/rinko-kawauchi%E2%80%99s-illuminance/#1)
