Kawauchi's work has garnered international acclaim. Widely admired for her lyrical images, Kawauchi transforms the ordinary into dream-like photographs tinged with nostalgia and melancholy. For her series Aila [Family], she focuses on nature's fleeting beauty, the subjects of creation and destruction, of life and death.
