This photograph was made the day after the earthquake in Tokyo by Rinko Kawauchi, one of the most noted Japanese photographers of her generation. She is known for her quiet aesthetic, offering viewers a glimpse of tender, fleeting moments that often go unnoticed. In this photograph Kawauchi captures the sun straining through a soot-filled sky. The resulting image is hauntingly beautiful, and a poignant illustration of the immediate aftermath of the devastation.
