スイスのインディペンデント・パブリッシャー、Nieves(ニーブス)から出版された、ホンマタカシさんの写真集『Tokyo and my Daughter』。

Takashi Homma took almost 10years to make this ZINE. It would have been easier to make this series of work if “My Daughter” were his daughter. She is actually not his kid but his friend’s. Many are not skeptical about the title first and later find out the fact. Of course some may still believe as title says and that’s why some have asked the photographer “how is your daughter?”. Like Robert Doisneau’s photograph of kissing couple in Paris, this work questions, “Does that matter to you?

Homma sees Tokyo differently from Araki nor Moriyama.

“The earthquake and subsequent tsunami of March 11th, 2011, near Japan’s Tohoku region, led to the catastrophic equipment failures and nuclear disaster of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. Six Months later, on September 15th, the Japanese government prohibited the gathering and ingestion of any mushrooms grown in the forty-three cities of Fukushima prefecture. Traces of radiation exceeding safety limits were detected in some wild mushroom varieties. Fungi inherently absorb radiation much more rapidly than other organisms. My Geiger counter detected a greatly elevated level of radiation in the lush forests of Fukushima when compared to the region’s urban areas. The wild mushrooms in the photographs assembled here are from those forests.” text from the book.
