Rinko Kawauchi: The Rain of Blessing

September 8, 2016 - September 25, 2016

rinko kawauchi

In 2001, Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi came into prominence following the released of three photography books: Utatane, Hanabi, and Hanako. Her images often depict the small details around us, placed in soft focus and suffused with a pale light that calls attention to both their gentleness and ephemerality. Her new exhibit, “The Rain of Blessing,” brings together four series from Kawauchi’s past and present, including her latest work recording the rebuilding of the Izumo Shrine, the periodic circling of winter birds, and Chinese fireworks made by throwing scrap iron at walls. Musing on her photographic process, Kawauchi compares it to grasping an object underwater and bringing it into the sunshine, “seeing for the first time, as it reflects the light—what it really looks like.” On until September 25.
