Takashi Homma’s New Waves is a deeply considered pictorial reflection on the interaction between land, sea and sky. While these works join a familiar pictorial tradition that stretches from the paintings of Turner to the contemporary photographs of Hiroshi Sugimoto, Homma’s photographs are not explorations in abstraction or stillness; instead, they place us squarely on the shore, inviting us to dwell on the visible details of foam and sand and the busy, sweeping, brushstroke effects of the water. If Homma’s images are clear-eyed, however, they are not without lyricism, as the dawn or early evening light frequently endows these scenes with light pinks and oranges. 

 

This publication gathers series made between 2000 and 2013, and has been conceived by Homma as a "re-edit" of previous presentations. Published for his solo exhibition at Longhouse Projects in New York, it includes an appendix of previous Japanese publications of the series, and an essay by David LaRocca that compares the series to works by Robert Mapplethorpe, Gerhard Richter, David Hockney and Hiroshi Sugimoto.
