Babel: Ordinary Landscapes (signed)

by Taishi Hirokawa


Photographs: Taishi Hirokawa

Publisher: Akaaka

96 pages

Pictures: color illustrations

Year: 2015

ISBN: 978-4-86541-031-0

Price: 55

Comments: hardcover with dust jacket and obi, 26,2 × 28,5 cm

Aesthetically speaking, Hirokawa has opted for an extremely stoic approach in this book. Artificial objects placed in natural settings are filled with an indescribable tedium, and their methodical geometry seems puzzlingly uncontrollable. The ambitious dazzle of the modern era, which set out to subjugate nature, has already been rendered inert and now we are confronted with the bleak results.
