Carps, clouds, a curtain, a tire, fried eggs, grandfather, a butterfly. These are the details of the everyday life that are too easily missed. Seen through the lens of Kawauchi's camera, however, the ordinary shines with bejeweled patterns of light; even an ant transforms into a statement of style. At the same time, the carcass of a dove proclaims the book's theme of the terror that exists next door to everyday beauty. This thoughtful debut photobook won awards for its graceful contemplation of mortality.
First published in 2001, this copy is the 9th printing from 2020.
