Rinko Kawauchi

Kawauchi is one of the artists that fit into the “Physical and Material” category because she is fully aware of the physical characteristics of photography (the difference in analogue and digital), so she chooses to shoot with a strictly observational style.

“Kawauchi is…not overcomplicating photographic strategies and remaining true to the notion that all around us are pictures waiting to happen.”

Her work is close to the snaps that we all make but sequenced in a lyrical way. In the end the observations are finely edited and sequenced into a whole body of work with an ultimate meaning/feeling.

Some of her subjects include babies being born, frying eggs, dewdrops, etc.

Her images are untitled, so the way they are put together give them meaning as a narrative.
