Rinko Kawauchi

Untitled (from the series “Cui Cui”) 2005

Rinko Kawauchi was born in Shiga, Japan, in 1972. She lives and works in Tokyo. Rinko graduated from Seian University of Art and Design in 1993 and started working as a photographer on a freelance basis in 1997. In 2001 she simultaneously released a series of three photographic books - UTATANE, HANABI, and HANAKO, which created an overnight sensation in the photography world in Japan. Further publications of Rinko Kawauchi, which should be mentioned, are AILA and CUI CUI. Kawauchi has joined and held many group and solo exhibitions both at home and abroad to date. She photographs her everyday life, whatever is around her, and it is through her selection and composition that she creates a magical feeling from her own environment. In some of her books she presents her images with her own poems.
