How does Fishpond Work?

We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

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 Ears" (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 Kawauchis work and the first to be published outside of Japan. Kawauchis 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 This impressive compilation of previously unpublished images is proof of Kawauchis unparalleled, unique sensibility and her on-going appeal to the lovers of photography.
