Rinko Kawauchi
Utatane
SC, 24 x 29 cm., o.pp.
Little More 2005

Carps, clouds, a curtain, a tire, fried eggs, grandfather, a butterfly... These are the details of the everyday life that are too easily missed. Seen through the lens of Kawauchi's camera, however, the ordinary shines with bejeweled patterns of light; even an ant transforms into statement of style. At the same time, the carcass of a dove proclaims the book's theme of the terror that exists next door to everyday beauty. This thoughtful debut photo-book won awards for its graceful contemplation of mortality.
