Scandinavian Mushroom
Photographs by Takashi Homma

Takashi Homma's Scandinavian Mushroom is a photographic tribute to Ed Ruscha's artist books created in the late 60s and early 70s. Taking reference to Ruscha's Coloured People published in 1972, Takashi Homma's Scandinavian Mushroom is a collection of photographs which capture a variety of wild mushrooms grown in the forests of Fukushima. Collecting several specimens of radioactive fungus, Homma's photographs resonate aesthetically to the same white background and photographic style used in Coloured People bringing forward Homma's own contextual narrative to the homage.

Undergrowth — SIGNED
Photographs by Shoko Hashimoto

Signed copies available to order!

"I pushed my way through the swirling sea of grass. The darkness beneath the thick ivy soothed me. Whenever my parents scolded me, whenever I felt a sense of failure, I would think 'Ah, I'm all alone,' and go there to hide. It was such a scary place. One day, the smell of chestnuts in the bush told me that I had grown up." — Shoko Hashimoto
