Rinko Kawauchi, Approaching Whiteness

Rinko Kawauchi is recognized for masterful editing and sequencing of her images to generate a rich body of photobooks. In response to this, presenting her photography as a sequence of frames on a scroll — a form with a rich history in Japan — is a new photobook form for the photographer that draws out some of the ideas at the core of her work. The sequence of frames flow from right to left and connote the passage of time as an uninterrupted sequence. This idea extends to a larger philosophy that all things are connected. Approaching Whiteness presents nine different sequences that each focus on a specific theme. Previews of the nine different scroll themes are available here. The total combined size of the edition is 300 scrolls. Each scroll is stamped by the Artist.
