Takashi Homma "New Waves"
This event has ended.
The "New Waves" series that has been released in exhibitions and magazines is being published as a book for the first time by Parco Publishing. To commemorate the publication, the "New Waves" exhibition is being held simultaneously in 2 galleries. Approximately 30 works that are included in the collection will be on display, and limited edition items such as original prints will be on sale.
This is an ongoing project that the artist started in 2000. Waves are all different, yet the same. In photographing only waves, this project is an extreme limitation of photographed subject. It is also a collection of photographs that the artist simply continues make, without the strong intent to capture decisive moments. The artist has often said that photographs are a pronouncement of his awareness of the world. Through this photography collection, his intent is not to create beautiful individual images, but to express the relationship between the object and photographer through a group of photographs. The viewpoint is similar to the "environment" theme that he has been pursuing since the 90s that includes "Architecture and the environment," "Cities and the environment" and "Cities and gardens."
