01/24/14 ‘Ametsuchi’, Photos from Rinko Kawauchi

Tokyo-based photographer Rinko Kawauchi, winner of the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award (2009), shares photos from her latest series, Ametsuchi. Among 40 images in a book that feature faraway constellations and religious ceremonies, these five present landscape-swallowed figures and yakihata, a traditional style of controlled-burn farming in Japan. The series suggests the means by which humankind ventures to comprehend “heaven and earth” (the ametsuchi), even attempting to conquer it.
