    Default rinko kawauchi

    hey everyone

    just want to introduce a young japanese photographer i've discovered in recent years.
    she has a gift for finding everyday moments, or maybe they find her.

    you can google her or check out her books at pageone (the glorious jap-photobook section).

    here are 2 links you may like to start with:

    sample images: http://www.priskapasquer.de/en/exhib...inko_kawauchi/
    interview and write-up on her london exhibition: http://www.pingmag.jp/2006/08/11/10-...t-photography/

    it's been said that rinko is fast becoming one of the most influential photographers of her generation! hope you will enjoy her work!

    very unusual way of looking at things
    quite a minimalistic style if you ask me

    but she's definitely something
    thanks for sharing =)

    I went through all the shots... hmmm... felt a little bit abstract...
    Can see the consistency in style in all the shots.

    thanks and appreciated for sharing this link.

    I love her work, got 2 books of hers
    I believe she uses Agfa film? she's part of a generation of female japanese photographers that arose in the late 90s/early 00s I believe
    A very whimsical eye, she has.

    hey mattlock

    which books of hers do u have? so far i've collected hanabi, utanane and her family album of 13 yrs- cui cui.

    am thinking of ordering hanako (the flowers series) from kino- hopefully it's in stock from the japanese side.

    what i really like abt her images is that they take you out of the artifice of looking through conventional photographic frames. that things do not have to be perfectly framed, that things in this world are not perfectly framed. it returns you to things as they are.

    I don't even know the name of the book I have!a japanese friend gave it to me, it's got a vivid blue cover filled with a mix of her commercial work and personal work.
    I wish I could shoot with such whimsy. Btw you can get alot of her books from Page One in Vivocity. that place is a photographer's wetdream

    Forgive me for my ignorance but can anyone shed some light as to what camera types she is using? Notice alot of vignetting in her pics.

    good idea- wood + light + dream pics.

    well what about a photo book sharing session? ppl can bring their fav photobook keepsakes to share and we can have a good feast for the eyes, over tea/coffee.

    ) anyone keen/wanna organise?

    it'd be a great if someone had a place w skylight..mmmmm

    the central library at bugis
    has a lot of pretty good books if you have the time to drop by and read

    when i'm bored and don't feel like shooting and have free time, of course
    i just drop by there and flip through photobooks
    foc too!

    I think the problem will be transporting them. I have way too many heavy books to handle...I don't mind a session somewhere central.anyone want to make arrangements?
