Rinko Kawauchi

Rinko Kawauchi, the renowned Japanese photographer, has her eyes on the past. Here, in this splendid video produced by Goliga, we gain insight into her project titled Approaching Whiteness. She combines the wisdom and poetry of her photography alongside the time-honoured tradition of the scroll format to explore new ways of photobook making. As the publisher Ivan Vartanian explains in the film, this means of presentation relates to Kawauchi's larger aesthetic interests: "We don't have individual moments or individual frames, rather we have a continuation of moments and a continuum of time."
