Product description

Review

A fine-art photographer whose work often explores the minutiae of everyday life, Kawauchi broadens her canvas here; the title Ametsuchi is a Japanese character amalgam of 'heaven and earth.' Many of her landscapes depict zigzagging fire patterns - from yakihata farming, a traditional controlled burn method - that are more deliberate than they seem. Some shots depict tiny human figures dwarfed by vast natural backdrops. Other images show distant constellations, Buddhist rituals, cavernous mountain lakes, symmetrical and amorphous patterns found in nature-all indicating a search for order and beautty in a chaotic, mysterious world.--Jack Crager "American Photo "

Having been a fan of Rinko Kawauchi for quite a few years now and already owning three of her books, I had the pleasure of coming upon this book at the Tate gallery shop and it made my heart skip a beat. Sumptuously presented. Right down to the paper, the details are not compromised.... The paper covering the hardback, opens into a double sided poster, each page is folded before binding onto which is printed a corresponding negative of the image on the main page... each of the images convey the particular mood that is prevalent within Kawauchi's photography.... I just can't help but look through this book and I feel like I am transported to dream like landscapes that only her photographs can convey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 26 Dec. 2013

A well crafted and compelling book. The work itself is really gorgeous, and the edit and sequencing of the book just make the series stronger.

3.0 out of 5 stars The pictures are beautiful, but the printing is really strange 2 Sept. 2014
By Felipe Abreu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The pictures are beautiful, but the printing is really strange, with very low contrast and loose pages.
I'm still not sure if I haven't bought a defective one..

5.0 out of 5 stars Rinko is a master. Period. 28 Jan. 2014
By meghanclare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The review about the "misprint" is farcical. Rinko signed my copy at a book-signing and it was wonderful to just stand near her. (I'm definitely not one to be starstruck--she just has a glow to her). She emanates the same wonderful energy in person as she does through her photography. Quiet genius. Thank you Rinko.

I do think, though, that Illuminance is still my favorite.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thought it was misprinted 21 Jan. 2014
By Tree MD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is horrible. What a joke. But alas some people's version of art. I returned the first on as I thought it was misprinted. Only when I got the second did I dig deeper and found out someone thinks this is a cool way to produce a book. Not for me, sending this one back too! And another thing....the pictures are terrible. Absolutely terrible. Maybe shot with a first gen iPhone. No, worse.
