Coffee & Photo Books: Rinko Kawauchi - featured photo book; January 2015

This month the featured photo books are by Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi. While many of her photographs are very poetic, her true strength lies IMO in her ability to intelligently sequence her photographs. The books "Utatane" and "Illumiance" are excellent examples of this.
The exhibition catalogue "Illuminace, Ametsuchi, Seeing Shadow" gives an insight into her work process through contact prints and work notes.
