Published by art zine empire Nieves in 2006, Takashi Homma’s Tokyo and My Daughter is a brief but beautiful collection of intimate photographs. The slim volume combines Homma’s two favorite subjects, with a selection of gorgeous cityscapes intertwined with comical and honest impressions of the artist’s young daughter.

Homma is renowned for his subdued Tokyo landscapes, but his portraits of Japanese youth are possibly even more affecting. The way he captures contemporary childhood is stunningly candid, instilling in the viewer a strong nostalgia for endless wonder– underlined by a sense of deep disquiet.
