TRAILS by Takashi Homma [SALE / CONDITION: C]

日本人写真家、ホンマタカシの作品集。北海道の知床国立公園で狩猟された鹿の血の痕跡(trails)が影を感じさせながらも美しく綴られている。儀式的に描かれた痕跡か、それともカリグラフィーで書かれた文字か。2009年から2018年の冬の間に撮影された鹿の血痕は、この一冊の作品集の中で抽象的かつ象徴的に描かれる。神聖視されながらも鹿の過度な増加は度々物議を醸してきており、殊に農作物の被害に関しては問題視され、環境庁の指示依頼により地元の猟師たちは鹿猟を行なっている。作者は、鹿の頭数を減らした結果生じたもの —雪を染める野生の赤い爪痕— を記録する。


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.
