Funny you should say that Gius, she produced two particular books called Rinko Diary and Rinko Diary II, which I guess in a way is kind of finding those 'climatic moments' in everyday life

Rinko Diary
Quote:
In this book, you will find what Rinko sees and feels every day through her eyes -suprises and findings during the shootings, what happened during herstay in foreign countries, beautiful flowers blooming in every season, memorable nice meals, calm and quiet moments spent in her home town, ordinary but precious moments with her close friends.
Diaries of a half year is packed to one book. Composed of day-to-day journals kept by Rinko every day, with a photo also taken by herself by camera phone on the same day.
Spacious layout, one page for one-day diary. Portable, paperback pocket size of the books enables you to bring them with you wherever you go.
You will love these books and want to keep them always at hand. Newly-taken, unpublished photos are also included in the end of the book.




Rinko Diary II
Quote:
The photographer Rinko Kawauchi's Camera Phone Diary

This is a sequel to the book "Rinko Diary," which was published in June 2006 and gained a good reputation.
"Rinko Diary" is the photographer Rinko Kawauchi's diary with photos posted on our web site. The site had 1200 access every day.

cont'd..























same sources as above..

I must say, I am blown away at the consistency of feel and emotion with Rinko's pictures, despite content or subject matter or light conditions...there is always this feeling that is quite peaceful and assuring...her pictures are taken with such a loving eye...she searches for quietness in the moments that escape us daily. I admire that.
