Rinko Kawauchi

Illuminance

ISBN: 9781597111447 (HB - E)

In 2001, Rinko Kawauchi launched her career with the simultaneous publication of three astonishing photobooks-Utatane, Hanabi, and Hanako-firmly establishing her as one of the most innovative newcomers to contemporary photography, not just in Japan, but across the globe. In the years that followed, she published other notable monographs, including Aila (2004), The Eyes, the Ear (2005), and Semear (2007). And now, ten years after her precipitous entry onto the international stage, Aperture is delighted to publish Illuminance, the latest volume of Kawauchi's work and the first to be published outside of Japan. Kawauchi's work has frequently been lauded for its nuanced palette and offhand compositional mastery, as well as her ability to incite wonder via careful attention to tiny gestures and the incidental details of her everyday environment. In Illuminance, Kawauchi continues her exploration of the extraordinary in the mundane, drawn to the fundamental cycles of life and the seemingly inadvertent, fractal-like organization of the natural world into formal patterns. This impressive compilation of previously unpublished images is proof of Kawauchi's unparalleled, unique sensibility and her ongoing appeal to the lovers of photography.
