Aila.




Aila. Photographs by Rinko Kawauchi. Foil, Tokyo, 2005. Unpaged, numerous color illustrations, 9½x12".

This book is interesting as a whole, but it is especially this haunting picture (quite different from the other in the book) that really grabs me.

"The photographs cropped by Rinko Kawauchi invite us to confront the line between life and death. By interspersing the portraits of everyday situations throughout the series, AILA finally becomes the most completed, overwhelmingly big series of Rinko Kawauchi to date."

Tack, fotograferingen gick bra, nu väntar jag med spänning på att nummret ska komma ut i butik!
