Trails

by Takashi Homma


Photographs: Takashi Homma

Publisher: Mack Books

Year: 2019

ISBN: 978-1-912339-34-1

Price: 38.50

Comments: Paperback with jacket, 22 x 31.5 cm

In this dark and beautiful book, Takashi Homma traces the blood trails of deers killed in Shiretoko National Park on the Japanese island of Hokkaido. Like ritualistic stains or calligraphic compositions, the photographs, which Homma made in the winters of 2009 to 2018, are at once abstract and symbolic. Considered by some to be sacred, deers in Japan have controversially faced culls due to growing populations, which upset agricultural communities struggling to protect their crops. To aid their mission in reducing numbers, the government encourages local hunters to take matters into their own hands. Homma photographs the effects – the red vestiges of wild life in the snow.
