Ispirata dallo Shinto, una religione giapponese dedicata all'essenza sacra della natura, ritiene che nessun soggetto sia troppo breve o ordinario per non essere fotografato. Rinko Kawauchi fotografa momenti quotidiani, la natura che la circonda. La sua serie "Hanabi" ("fuoco d'artificio") ritrae la visione della fotografa di uno spettacolo pirotecnico. Siamo attratti da una danza di luci e colori e, in un batter d'occhio, una festa elegante e sensoriale volge al termine, lasciandoci a chiedere cosa Kawauchi abbia visto nei fuochi d'artificio e cosa ci sia oltre.

Inspired by Shinto, a Japanese religion devoted to the sacred essence of nature, she considers that no subject is too brief or ordinary to not be photographed. Rinko Kawauchi photographs everyday moments, nature that surrounds her. Her series ‘Hanabi’ (firework) depicts the photographer's vision of a fireworks show.The breezes of summer nights or clouds portending warm showers are nostalgic, beautiful and melancholic at once. We are drawn in by a dance of lights and colours, and in the blink of an eye, an elegant and sensory party ends, leaving us wondering what Kawauchi saw in the fireworks.
