Rinko Kawauchi, Ametsuchi @ Aperture Gallery

Some rather lovely photographs of flaming landscapes with the occasional shot of the stars and what I assumed was a blown-out picture of the Wailing Wall. Apparently it is about farming in Japan and the burning of brush, I guess to get ready for planting. Honestly, I don’t think the subject of the pictures matters for the most part. Being confronted by some cryptic pictures of fire, smoke, nature, stars what looked liked the Wailing Wall, I just assumed we were dealing with something biblical. Now again the show is about framing in Japan, but I think the pictures are good enough to carry my biblical interpretation, and who doesn’t like pictures of fire?

Already Down
