Rinko Kawauchi

Summer 2006

The Photographers' Gallery, 8 Great Newport Street


"It is clear that Kawauchi sees her work as an almost inexhaustible archive of images with an endless number of potential articulations. Her working process combines a rigour with an instinctive responsiveness that lends her photographs a lightness of touch. At times she takes an almost anthropological approach, presenting butterflies and moths, fish and turtles, snakes and giraffes, alongside close-up shots of icicles and plants. She combines this with images that capture more momentary events animals in the landscape, of waterfalls and forests."
