Rinko Kawauchi (b. 1972 in Shiga, Japan) is an internationally acclaimed photographer. In 2002, she received the 27th Kimura Ihei Award for her series Utatane and Hanabi. In 2023, she was honoured with the Sony World Photography Award for Outstanding Contributions to Photography. Her most notable series include Illuminance (2011), Ametsuchi (2013), and Halo (2017). Recent publications include the photobooks Yamanami (2022) and Making Daidai Shoten (2022; in collaboration with Hisako Tajiri). Kawauchi’s work is frequently shown in exhibitions around the world and her native Japan, such as the major solo exhibition Rinko Kawauchi: M/E ― On this sphere Endlessly interlinking at Tokyo Opera City Gallery (2022) and Shiga Museum of Art (2023).

This exhibition, a dialogue between two female photographers of different generations, is supported by Women In Motion, a Kering program to shine a light on women in the fields of arts and culture. Since 2015, Women In Motion has provided a platform for reflection on the role of women – challenging mindsets and providing opportunities for greater recognition of their contributions in all areas of the arts.
