Publisher: Tokyo Art Book Fair
Print Size: 127 x 178 mm / Motif of the print will be selected randomly
Published on the occasion of the Tokyo Art Book Fair 2023, which included a section dedicated to publishers and artists from Nordic countries, Takashi Homma presents his new photobook “Islands, Islets, and Their Mushrooms” in collaboration with Tove Jansson translator Keiko Morishita.
For the book, Homma revisited the Finnish islands he first traveled to in 2016, inspired by the 1998 documentary film “Haru: The Island of the Solitary” about Tove Jansson. Homma’s photographs capture the beauty of the islands and the sea between them, but also offer a brief photographic account of the various mushrooms that grow in the region. The photographs are interspersed with personal essays written by Keiko Morishita (who served as Homma’s coordinator) about his own experiences on the islands and the lives of the people who live there.
