One could argue that Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi is famous not just for her work, but also for her way of viewing the world. She made a name for herself by spotting motifs in small, serene moments. The Japan Times has called her a “master of finding stillness and purity in everyday life”, and it’s that ability which makes her images stand out.

Here I’ve put together a photo collection in that spirit. Taken by various members of the EyeEm community, these photos are a nod to Kawauchi’s famous style—and an inspiration to look for the exceptional in everyday life.
