Various species of mushrooms from the far northern reaches of Europe are the subject of this cryptically brief series of color photographs by Takashi Homma.
Inspired by the word paintings of Ed Ruscha, Homma takes the Ruscha-style cover’s introduction of a cut-and-dried theme and expands upon it, literally and visually. It seems, however, that the photographer is not such an avid mushroom hunter since relatively few examples are pictured and most of the pages are in fact blank. This book has no text.
