Rinko Kawauchi, born 1972 in Shiga, Japan, is a photographer extraordinaire known for her thought-evoking monographs. After graduating from the Seian University of Art and Design in 1993, she became active in the field of photography. At 25 years old, she was handed the Grand Prix Accolade from the Guardian Garden’s 9th Hitotsobo Award.
Kawauchi released a triumvirate of monographs, Hanabi, Utatane, and Hanako, for which she won the prestigious Ihei Kimura Award in 2002. That same year she was given the “Rookie of the Year” Award by the Japan Photographic Society. Following this trio of monographs are Blue in 2004, Aila in 2004, The Eyes The Ears and Cui Cui in 2005, Rinko Diary I and II in 2006, Majun and Semear in 2007, Murmuration in 2010, and Illuminance in 2011.
Kawauchi efforts were immediately recognized by the international photography community. For her masterpieces she was given the Annual Infinity Award (Art Category) from the International Center of Photography, US.
