Publisher's Description

The beloved photographer Takashi Homma captures the distinctive character and light of Le Corbusier’s windows in this elegant softcover volume

Internationally acclaimed photographer Takashi Homma (born 1962) first encountered Le Corbusier’s work in Chandigarh, a city in India whose master plan was primarily designed by the architectural pioneer. Since then, Homma has traveled around the world to capture the iconic Le Corbusier style with a particular focus on windows.

Both an homage to Le Corbusier’s architecture and a partial study of the window as a form, Homma’s photography series conveys the extent to which windows function as their own artistic element within the overall design of a building. Rather than simply looking through the windows at the landscapes contained within their frames, Homma’s photographs encourage viewers to also look at the windows and consider them as subjects unto themselves. With Homma’s exquisite compositional instincts, his images offer a new perspective on the overlap between architectural photography and fine-art photography.
