"Atmosphere and lighting are very important to me. When I photograph en contre-jour, what I am trying to do is capture the soul or aura of the subject rather than the subject itself… I guess that is the reason why people say that my lighting is unique."  Rinko Kawauchi
Good photographs, like all great art, resonate with the viewer long after seeing the actual work.  Recently, I happened upon the work of Rinko Kawauchi and found myself drawn into her world of color and light. The images have never left me. Beguilingly simple, Kawauchi’s photographs tell stories, ask questions, and reflect broader themes.  And when pulled together into a wonderfully edited book or a slideshow these images take on a greater power.  Take note: Rinko Kawauchi is one of Japan’s finest working photographers, and, I suspect, one we’ll continue hearing more about.  Lane Nevares
