Description - Takashi Homma: Tokyo by Takashi Homma

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.
