Rinko Kawauchi nominated for Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2012

Nominated for her publication Illuminance, published by Editions Xavier Barral (France, 2011).

Hailed for her ability to turn the mundane into the extraordinary and poetic, Kawauchi’s work explores themes of life, death and the everyday.

Illuminance, the result of both commissions and personal projects, spans fifteen years of her practice. Using a soft palette of colours and masterful composition and editing skills, her images evoke moments of dreams, memory and temporality.
