ILLUMINANCE – The Tenth Anniversary Edition – Ten years after Illuminance was published in 2011, Aperture is reissuing this beloved book, retaining Rinko Kawauchi’s original sequence and its characteristic blend of acutely observed gestures, everyday details, and a finely honed palette. The Illuminanceseries is the result of fifteen years of work and reflects the Japanese photographer’s experience during this period. It is a long meditation on the miraculous qualities of light and its power to reveal, with a very personal approach.

On the book’s release, Alec Soth said that Illuminancewas “an exquisite monograph [qui] should make Rinko a household name.” This edition, enhanced with additional texts by curator David Chandler, philosopher Masatake Shinohara, and Aperture creative director Lesley A. Martin, brings new context and perspective to Kawauchi’s influential work. Extraordinarily poetic, brimming with imagination and sensitivity, and enjoying international recognition, this tenth anniversary edition will once again appeal to photography enthusiasts.
