Inspired by a dream Rinko Kawauchi has consistently toured for several years a region in Japan, where a traditional style of controlled-burn farming is used to regenerate the arable land.
The images of the mighty fire, which are held regularly in March, are accompanied by landscape photographs from other seasons and mixed with photographs of celestial alignements, planetariums or night time Kagura dances.
A mystical concept of world, laid out in a large format book that emphasizes the mysteriousness with its special origami binding and ›hidden‹ pictures.
