Publisher's Description
Vedove/Widows by Takashi Homm is the first of the Fantombooks series. Curated by Francesco Zanot and designed by Fabrizio Radaelli, the book is extremely accurate in concept and printing and published in an edition of 350 copies (2 volumes: pages 16 + 55, cm. 23 x 17).

The project is the result of the cooperation between Andrea Botto and Francesco Zanot, respectively director and curator of the annual Rapallo Fotografia festival in Italy, who entrusted the Japanese photographer to work around the theme of memory and personal archives in Rapallo and in the region of Liguria.

During his stay in the area, fascinated by the pictures stored in the archives of Genoa and Rapallo, Homma explored the need to preserve personal and intimate memories, especially after a loss. Thus he shot eleven portraits of widowed women - witnesses for their dead partners’ memories - and captured a glimpse of the places where they live, and re-photographed the snapshots of the widows’ family albums.
