Rinko Kawauchi... Untitled (2007, c-print). From Works by Rinko Kawauchi at Cohan and Leslie Gallery in New York. "...15 new photographs by Rinko Kawauchi, which are a preview of her upcoming publication Utatane II. The first volume of Utatane was Kawauchi’s first publication (2001), and was something of an art publishing phenomenon, it has since sold 30,000 copies worldwide. The images in Utatane II continue to capture ephemeral and fleeting moments, whether found or staged by the artist. She has a particular interest in fragility and impermanence, communicated through images of short lived insects, transitory bubbles or an x-ray of her own broken ribs."
