Ten years after publishing Illuminance in 2011, Aperture is delighted to bring this beloved book back into print, retaining Rinko Kawauchi's original sequence and signature melding of keenly observed gestures, quotidian detail, and a finely honed palette.
On the book's original release, Alec Soth declared Illuminance "an exquisitely produced monograph [that] should make Rinko a household name." An expanded edition with additional texts by curator David Chandler; philosopher Masatake Shinohara; and Aperture's creative director, Lesley A. Martin, this reissue contributes new context to and perspective on Kawauchi's influential work. Extraordinarily poetic, brimming with imagination and sensibility, and following international acclaim, this exquisite ten-year anniversary edition will entice lovers of photography once again.
