Published in 1998, and the Kimura Ihei Award winner of the year, this is one of Homma’s masterpieces from his early years.
He managed to turn the not-so-photogenic objects such as houses in the suburbs, dull sceneries, video game arcades, stoney-faced kids, McDonald’s, family restaurants, and parking lots, into a piece of work that has become a milestone in the history of Japanese photography. Architect, Momoyo Kaijima and the Sociologist, Shinji Miyadai contributed texts. The photobook has been dealt at a very high value in the secondhand market as it has already gone out of print, and the publisher dissolved.This book was also picked up in “The Photobook: A History volume II” written and edited by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger.
