Takashi Homma: Tokyo
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Since the advent of photography, certain cities have become inextricably intertwined with the images taken by great photographers including Eugene Atget in turn-of-the century Paris; Berenice Abbott in 1930s New York; and, Ed Ruscha in a late-sixties Los Angeles. While Daido Moriyama documented the disaffection and dissipation of postwar Tokyo, Takashi Homma deftly picks up the baton with a contemporary portrait of the modern-day metropolis that is both cinematic and complex. For over a decade, Homma has turned his lens toward Tokyos suburban environs and urban center. His vision of Tokyo navigates a finely nuanced line between sterility and sentimentality, presenting a sleek, contemporary vision of a postmodern megalopolis populated by a new generation of video game aficionados and enervated fashionistas. While he has published extensively inside his native Japan, this is Hommas first volume published for an international audience."Takashi Homma: Tokyo" compiles selections from each of the artists six previously published titles about the city, including "Tokyo Suburbia", his seminal work now considered a contemporary classic.
