From the Publisher:
Since the early days of photography, certain cities have become inextricably intertwined with their depiction by great photographers: Eugene Atget in turn-of-the-century Paris; Berenice Abbott in 1930s New York; Ed Ruscha in late-60s Los Angeles. While Daido Moriyama documented the disaffection and dissipation of postwar Tokyo, Takashi Homma 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 the neutral gaze of his lens toward Tokyo's suburban environs and urban center. His vision of Tokyo navigates a finely nuanced line between sterility and sentimentality, detachment and lusciousness, presenting a sleek, contemporary vision of a postmodern megalopolis populated by a new generation of video game aficionados and enervated fashionistas, but also the site of cutting-edge architectural experiments and quiet rooftop gardens.|While Homma has published extensively inside his native Japan, this is his first volume published for an international audience. Takashi Homma: Tokyo compiles selections from each of the artist's previously-published titles on the city, including Tokyo Suburbia, his seminal work now considered a contemporary classic.
