Rinko Kawauchi will publish her new book “Illuminance” in May. It will be her first book being published outside Japan. Publisher is Aperture, New York; and the photobook will be available in Germany at Kehrer Verlag as well.
“It’s not enough that [the photograph] is beautiful,” says Kawauchi. “If it doesn’t move my heart, it won’t move anyone else’s heart.”
The series will be on view at Hermès, New York, from May 19. Some works from “Illuminance” were exhibited at our gallery last September under the title “A Glimmer in Silence“.
