Rinko began photographing at the age of 19. In the first week of her photography class at university, her professor laid down strict rules about the subjects we could not photograph, to bypass all the predictable photographic clichés. These included: animals, old people, trees in Central Park, children and Chinatown. Rinko Kawauchi violates almost all of these rules. In fact, animals, she admits, are her favourite things to photograph, and they reappear again and again among her images (it’s almost as if her pictures of other subjects are an excuse to justify so many animal portraits). Silk worms, Koi fish, fireflies, dragonflies, moths – the smaller and more delicate the better.
