Favourite Photographers: Rinko Kawauchi.

Rinko Kawauchi is a Japanese fine art photographer who captures those every day moments that are so often overlooked in a beautiful and poetic way. Focusing on themes including family, the cycle of life and nature she uses natural light to create these magical looking photographs.

She predominantly photographs using a medium format film camera which is also one of my favourite mediums to work within. She says that ‘for a photographer, it's a necessity that you can shoot stuff magically. Accidents are necessary" and I completely agree. Many photographers insist that every single image was intended to turn out the way it did, but we all love a happy accident at times!

I just adore delicate imagery like this. This is definitely the sort of art work that I dream about having in my future home. It's so simple yet so beautifully detailed and the colours are just divine. I'm in love!

What do you think about this type of photography?


  1. These are really lovely. Those split moments in time are exactly why I love short essays by David Sedaris. He takes the little bits in life and makes them magnicent.

  2. The last photo is so stunning it's almost unreal!


  3. Wow! I'm blown away by those last two images. So delicate, like you say. Can you imagine how great it'd feel to take that picture?

  4. Beautiful pictures!


  5. I nominated you on my blog my dear! xx
